Don't be fooled, just because it's creamed doesn't mean in bad for you. Simply pureeing the soup with an immersion blender and adding a little low fat sour cream does the trick.

  • 2 lbs. asparagus, fresh, organic
  • 1 tbs. butter, unsalted, organic, raw or unpasteurized, grass-fed/pastured
  • 1 med. onion, any type, organic
  • 6 c. chicken broth, organic, free-range
  • sea salt, unrefined, & fresh ground pepper, organic to taste
  • 2 tbs. sour cream, organic

In a large pot, melt better on low heat. Add onion and sauté on low for about 2-3 minutes.

Snap the tough ends off the asparagus and discard. Chop the asparagus into 2 inch pieces. Add to the pot with the onions. Add chicken broth, salt and pepper. Cover and cook about 20-25 minutes or until asparagus is very tender. Remove from heat, add sour cream or Greek plain yogurt and using your hand held blender, puree until smooth.
