It's ASPERGRASS Season Again!

Easy to make, freezes OK... excellent the second day!

Asparagus Soup

INGREDIENTS
1 pound fresh asparagus (save the woody stems for broth)
3/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 pinch ground black pepper
1 1/4 cups chicken broth
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup plain yogurt (or sour cream)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 tsp dried dill
DIRECTIONS
1. I use canned chicken broth and boil the woody stem pieces in it beforehand and then discard stems when all the goods are out of them.
2. Place asparagus and onion in a saucepan with 1/2 cup chicken broth. Bring the broth to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer until the vegetables are tender.
3. Reserve a few asparagus tips for garnish. Place remaining vegetable mixture in an electric blender and puree until smooth.
4. Melt butter in the pan that was used for simmering the asparagus and onions. Stir while sprinkling flour, salt, and pepper and dill into the butter. Do not let the flour brown. Allow the mixture to cook only 2 minutes. Stir in remaining 1 1/4 cups vegetable broth and increase the heat. Continue stirring until the mixture comes to a boil.
5. Stir the vegetable puree and milk into the saucepan. Whisk yogurt into the mixture, followed by lemon juice. Stir until heated through, then ladle into bowls. Garnish with reserved asparagus tips.
