Asparagus & Carrot Soup

Happy Monday Morning!

 

What a gorgeous weekend we had ….. here in the sunny Okanagan! Just gorgeous ……

 

You know …. when is so beautiful outside …. even my body craves healthier foods.

 

….. salads …. fresh & grilled veggies …. fruits …. smoothies ….. WATER …. lot of WATER (do not forget to raise your water intake during warm months)

 

The other night I was making  Oven Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Gremolata  for dinner and

I had full container of ASPARAGUS ends left ….

…you know …. the ugly part we always snap off & chuck in the garbage or compost.

I figured ….. why not make ASPARAGUS SOUP out of it ….. then I patted myself on the back
for being such a genius ( I am sure there are others who thought of that, but give me this one).
 

Since I wanted to make a decent pot of soup I didn’t think I have enough ASPARAGUS so I added CARROTS to the mix ….
 

… and for good measures I threw in a PARSNIP.
 

…. there you have it ….. ASPARAGUS & CARROT SOUP …. yummy!

Family loved the ASPARAGUS & CARROT SOUP and there were requests for seconds ….
 

… and after dinner ….
 

Sunday night drive for ICE CREAM …. while Little Peanut totally burned me ….
 
… while listening to my husband’s iPod he left in my truck …..

 

Me: Your dad sure has some weird songs on his iPod, doesn’t he?
LP: Yup, he sure does! And it’s interesting how YOU know all the words to them!

 
Well, there you have it! I guess I was asking for it!

    Oh yum! That looks great, and what a wonderful way to use up asparagus ends :)

  2. What a great idea! I usually feed those ends to the chickens, but I think we’ll appreciate the soup more :-)

    We use the ends that we don’t eat to make soup as well! We add a chicken stock and shallots. I’ll definitely try out this recipe next time we have some on hand.
