Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    1 Tbs Olive Oil
    2 cloves Garlic, sliced thin
    1 slice Onion, chopped
    4 cups Chicken Broth, low-sodium
    2 lbs Asparagus
    1/4 tsp coarse Black Pepper
    1 bunch of fresh Spinach

Directions

1. Break off tough stem ends of Asparagus.
2. Heat Olive oil in pot, add Garlic & Onion til fragrant, not browned (about 1 minute).

3. Add Chicken broth to pot w/onions & garlic, put tough ends of asparagus into pot. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.

4. While asparagus cooks, cut remaining asparagus spears into 2 pieces just below heads. Wash Spinach and trim stems.

5. When 10 minutes are up, remove the asparagus ends and discard.

6. Place the asparagus stems & tips in the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat a bit, cover, and let cook 10 minutes.

7. Remove from heat, add spinach leaves. Stir them into the broth until they wilt.

8. Place the soup into a blender. Be careful; when blenderizing hot liquids the air in the blender will expand and throw the contents everywhere. Keep the stopper open/ajar so that the air can escape the blender. Puree the soup well.

9. Ladle into bowls.

Serves 2

You can refrigerate the soup for a day, be careful not to let it boil. If it boils, it loses a lot of the bright green color.
