In an attempt to be healthier, my mind has been spinning on ways to be satisfied with the meals I prepare and not sacrifice flavor. I found a recipe on Girl Growing Small that I thought looked promising. I ended up adjusting it more to my palette and I'm very happy with the results! It was super quick and easy! And the best part? My little family liked it too, which is a HUGE bonus!
2 bunches asparagus, woody ends cut off
1 medium white onion, chopped
3 cups chicken stock
1 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
salt, pepper and cayenne to your tastes
Throw your chopped onion into a small saute pan with a pat(around 1 TBS) of butter. Caramelize the onion over medium heat stirring frequently until onions are tender. In a large stock pot bring roughly 5 cups of water to a boil. Add the asparagus and boil for 5 minutes. Once asparagus is tender, measure out 1 cup of the cooking water and pour into the pitcher of your blender along with the cooked asparagus and caramelized onion. Blend until smooth. Pour the blended mixture back into the empty stock pot, add the greek yogurt and chicken stock. Stir well over medium heat until warmed through. Add salt, pepper and cayenne to your tastes. Enjoy!
