Ingredients

  • 2

    tablespoons butter

  • 1

    leek, thinly sliced, or 1/2 cup diced onion

  • 2

    tablespoons flour

  • 2

    cups chicken broth

  • 1

    pound asparagus, trimmed, chopped

  • 2

    tablespoons fresh chopped parsley

  • 1

    cup heavy cream

  • salt and pepper

  • fresh chopped parsley for garnish, optional

Directions

In a medium saucepan, cook leek or onions in butter over medium-low heat until tender. Add flour and stir until well incorporated. Add chicken broth, chopped asparagus, and parsley. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until asparagus is tender. Carefully, working with about 1 to 2 cups at a time, blend or process until smooth; return to the saucepan and add cream. Heat through. Add a dash of pepper and 1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley, if desired. Serves 4.
