I was looking for a way to use up a bit of asparagus...I came upon this poor orphaned recipe so I tried it--and adopted it!
prep time20 Min
cook time30 Min
potato, peeled and diced
"just a pinch" of salt
"just a pinch" of pepper
How To Make
In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat then add the chopped onion and cook until tender without browning.
As you can see, I elected to add some mushrooms that needed to be used up!
Stir in diced potato and liquid. Bring to a boil and simmer until potato is tender.
Stir in your steamed vegetable of choice and return to a simmer.
Puree the soup in batches in a blender and return to saucepan; or use an immersion blender - Leave 1 cup of vegetables not pureed if a chunkier soup is preferred.
Season soup with salt and pepper and finish with heavy cream. Heat through and garnish as you like!
SUGGESTION: Carrots, broccoli, spinach or peas would all be great in this recipe!
Last Step: Don't forget to share!
Make all your friends drool by posting a picture of your finished recipe on your favorite social
network. And don't forget to tag Just A Pinch and include #justapinchrecipes so we can see it too!
