I had two cans of asparagus sitting on my shelf since getting married. I know. Cans of asparagus. That doesn’t sound very appetizing, does it? They were given to me, though, and I definitely didn’t want to throw them out or try to underhandedly re-gift them. 😉
I spent some time pondering how I should use these cans up, because I really only like asparagus if it’s fresh and lightly fried. I was given some great ideas from friends online, and then I remembered this cream of asparagus soup recipe my sister Tammy had posted quite some time ago.
It turned out pretty well! I made it slightly differently than the recipe she shared, because I didn’t have fresh asparagus. (I blended all of it, not just part of it.) It tasted great!
This is a way I saved money on a meal by using something I had, but also by being creative. This is not my absolute favorite soup in the world, but it’s good, and fun for a change!
Plus, it’s pretty and green. 🙂
Who knew that canned asparagus could have an upside??
