Ingredients

  • 2 pounds asparagus spears, chopped into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 white or yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • juice of 1/2 medium lemon

  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Instructions

  • In a large stock pot over medium heat, melt butter. Add onion and garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes until onions are translucent and tender. Add asparagus, lemon juice, and chicken/vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes until asparagus is very tender.
  • Transfer to a blender and puree until smooth. Transfer back to stock pot.
  • Add milk, cheese, salt, and pepper and stir until cheese is completely melted and incorporated. Serve with additional parmesan cheese as desired – enjoy!
