Asparagus Soup (Asparagus soup is alkalizing which is very health promoting.)
1 large onion chopped
2 cloves of garlic-chopped
1 bunch of asparagus trimmed (break off hard ends at stems) then chopped into 1 inch pieces
2 quarts of free range organic chicken broth
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
Saute the onion and garlic in 1 tablespoon of olive oil or ghee (clarified butter) until they are just transparent in large 4 quart pot with a lid. Add the chicken broth, asparagus and almond milk.
Cover with lid and cook for 30 minutes on medium heat. Use immersion blender to purée into creamy soup after 30 minutes.
Add lite salt and pepper to taste and serve hot.
You can use this same recipe for broccoli, for cauliflower, for squash and for carrot soup. Just substitute 1 head of broccoli or cauliflower or 2 cups of carrots or squash all cut into 1 inch pieces. You may add a 1/4 tsp of tabasco sauce to any of these soups to give it a touch of zest.
