I said yesterday that I was planning to cook an Asparagus soup for dinner.
Here it is:
And it was DELICIOUS!!!!
Usually I don't really get off on asparagus. I have only just started eating it in the last 3 months or so. I usually add it to sauces and stuff to sort of hide it. But this soup ROCKS!! The kids wanted more and even Baby made the comment that she didn't even need to have bread with it because it was soo yummy! (She normally has half a dozen pieces of bread with her soup!) It was so easy to make.
Unfortunately, I don't know who to credit for this recipe as I got it off the internet. I will try harder next time to remember and create a link to credit the proper person.
1 bunch of asparagus
1 large onion, largely sliced
1-5 cloves of garlic (I used all 5!)
2C vege stock
2 1/2C milk (I used rice milk)
2T soy sauce/ Tamari (I used Braggs)
Chop asparagus and place with onion, garlic and stock in a pot. Bring to the boil and then reduce to medium heat and cook until veges are tender (about 15 minutes). Add flour and cook for one minute more. Take off heat and add milk, soy sauce, and basil. Blend/Process until smooth. Return soup to the heat and heat slowly and serve.
Will definitely be making this soup again!
Today the kids and I went for a jog to Coburg Lake, had a play on the playground and jogged home. Ok, so only I jogged, but the kids went on their new scooters that Popeye bought them before he left. I was disappointed that I had forgotten my camera as the signs of spring were everywhere! Goslings and cygnets walking around with their mothers. It was so cute. I'll try to remember that next time we head out that way!
Anyway, just a quick shout out to the really cool Planet VeGMeL It is a collection of vegan food blogs from Melbourne. Really cool idea, hope more Melbourne vegan bloggers get on board!
Only 2 more days until the official start of VeganMoFo. Bring it on!
