Fresh Asparagus Soup


This delicious soup can be made with canned chicken broth or by boiling leftover chicken bones. You can make a "not-so-light" version of this soup by substituting real bacon and heavy cream for the turkey bacon and light milk.
Soup may be frozen before milk is added.

  • 2 lbs. fresh asparagus, diced
  • 12 slices turkey bacon, diced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 32 oz chicken broth
  • 1 Tb olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp white pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp dill weed



Step 1

Saute turkey bacon on medium heat about 10 minutes. Add onion and garlic and continue to cook until tender. Remove from heat.
Microwave asparagus until tender, about 8 minutes. Reserve 1 cup of asparagus.
Blend remaining asparagus with chicken broth in blender. Heat asparagus/broth mixture with bacon and onions in a soup pot. Add pepper and salt and simmer for 1/2 hour, stirring occasionally. Add reserved asparagus pieces and heat for 1 minute. (At this point, soup may be frozen. Just add milk when heating.) Add milk and continue to heat just until hot (not boiling).
