Asparagus is a member of the Lily family but unlike the beautiful flower these flavorful stalks make a delicious
soup. Most recipes call for cream, milk, butter or yogurt for the creamed version of this recipe. I will show you how to make this healthy but with delicious rich flavor. Asparagus come in five sizes: small, standard, large, jumbo and colossal. When making soup you can use your favorite size. I prefer small to standard, preferring the delicate flavor which I find a little less woody than the larger sizes
Chop onion, garlic and cauliflower. Break the asparagus spears at the tender points (by bending the spear it will break naturally at its most tender point) It is amazing to discover that almost all spears in a bunch will generally break at about the same spot. Sauté onion and garlic in a drop of olive oil for about 5 minutes.. Add asparagus and cauliflower to soup pot and cover with water. Add dill, salt and pepper. Cook until cauliflower is soft (about 20-25 min) Turn off heat and add a handful of spinach (about 1 cup) and cilantro
