Asparagus Soup ***
Serving Size: 8

Categories: 20 Carbs or less; Asparagus; Onions; Potato;
WW Points - 2


2 pounds fresh asparagus -- woody ends snapped off
5 cups low sodium chicken broth
3 cups water
5 green onions -- finely chopped
1 1/2 cups potatoes -- peeled and cut in 1/2" cubes
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
chopped fresh parsley -- for garnish
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Rinse asparagus spears; cut into 1-inch lengths.

Reserve a few small asparagus tips to microwave or steam for a garnish for each serving.

In crock-pot, combine asparagus with the broth, green onions, and potatoes. Cover and cook LOW for 5 to 7 hours, until the potatoes are tender.

Increase temperature setting to HIGH

With a blender (I use an emersion blender) or food processor, puree the vegetable solids in batches, with a little of the cooking liquid, until somewhat smooth.

Return to the liquid remaining in the slow cooker. Stir in the seasoned salt and pepper, tasting and adjusting amount of seasoning to taste.

Cover and cook on high 30 minutes longer.

Serve garnished with a few cooked asparagus tips or fresh parsley.


NOTE: if you omit the tsp. salt from this recipe you will only have 332 mg sodium.

When I click on "create a new topic", does it put it underneath (in the group of) "questions and answers"? Guess we'll find out.

I have a soup question, can any of you give me an idea (and the recipe) of a new soup? I make soup every week in my crockpot, and need a new idea. Lately I've made tomato, 15 bean, veggie garlic beef, chicken rice, turkey noodle, black bean, butternut squash, and split pea.

Thanks alot.

Happy New Year!
