Ingredients

  • 3/4 lb asparagus spears, trimmed and chopped in 1-inch pieces
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 10 green onions, chopped
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 15 oz chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup flat parsley, chopped
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbs pine nuts, toasted and finely chopped
  • 6 Tbs freshly grated parmesean cheese (1 Tbs per bowl of soup)
  • Garlic salt
  • Black Pepper

Directions

  • Creamy Asparagus SoupIn a large pot, add olive oil, onions, and garlic over medium heat. Let mixture sweat, but do not let the garlic burn.
  • Once the onions have turned translucent (about 5 min), add the stock and chickpeas. Increase heat to medium-high and allow come to a boil. Add asparagus and cook until tender but not limp. Stir in half the parsley.
  • Blend ingredients. (I use a hand blender which worked great. Just take the pot off the heat and blend it in right in the pot! If you don’t have a hand blender, you can use a regular blender.) With a slotted spoon, scoop solid ingredients into a blender. Pour in half of the remaining broth. Blend until just smooth.
  • Add lemon juice, parsley, and pine nuts. Continue to blend. (If you are using a regular blender, this is where you’d add the rest of the broth as well.)
  • Add garlic salt and black pepper to taste
  • Top each bowl with 1 Tbsp fresh parmesean cheese
