Cream of Asparagus Soup (sans the cream)

Do you love creamy soups but know they aren’t the healthiest option? Then, you’re gonna love this recipe! What’s great about this recipe is you can substitute other veggies for the asparagus. I often sub in different veggies for asparagus to make cream of mushroom, cream of broccoli and cream of celery soup. But since asparagus is in season right now, I love making this soup. Give it a try and post your comments on my Facebook page. I look forward to hearing from you!
