When no one in the family likes asparagus, what does a girl do,with all those wonderful recipes featuring asparagus? I think, this may be the in-season for asparagus since it appears each time, I click on a recipe.
Here it is again,in our weekly recipe for The Food Matters Project, selected by Adrienne of Adrienne Eats, where you will find the recipe for White Bean and Asparagus Soup. I may not love asparagus but I do admire this blog, which has its stress on healthy eating with delectable recipes. Check out her Friday Favorites, bloggers of note.
Usually, I select some green vegetable replace the asparagus such as broccoli or spinach. My darling husband had just brought me a box of avocados and a few of them were ripe and that is the moment, I knew this was going to be a White Bean and Avocado Soup and it did work well. I did use regular sized tomatoes, rather than small ones. We like the flavor it brings to soups. Instead of chicken soup as a base, I used an organic vegetable broth.
With the cooler weather returning, I have been making soups, on a regular basis. This fit right in.
Thanks to Adrienne for a good pick. Go on over to the Food Matters Project and see who else has participated and what they have come up with. If you are a Mark Bittman fan, you just might want to join us in cooking his yummy recipes.
