Asparagus soup recipes tempt you to new flavours and experiences. This makes a dish for four.
A beautiful Dutch couple brought me two kilograms of fresh asparagus snipped from their lands this morning. Have you any idea how much that is? It is nearly five pounds.

They are particularly rich in a phyto-nutrient called a saponin which has a wide range of benefits.
Not only do saponins help prevent malignant disease and inflammation, but they regulate blood-pressure and sugar; and cholesterol too. That is amazing.
They also have large amounts of beta-carotene. Read more about saponins at our phytochemical foods page. Asparagus is particularly rich in vitamin K and folate.
Fresh-asparagus shoots are to die for. I never realised that slightly bitter flavour that I have associated with the soup is simply a sign that they were harvested several days previously.
By then the sugars and starches have begun to break down and the veggies have lost their fresh, sweet-taste.
There are also abundant quantities of many of the B-vitamins and minerals.
This happens much quicker than with other vegetables. Three-times as
fast as lettuce, for example; eat your asparagus the same day you purchase them.
The fresh piquant flavour is just right for dozens of delicious dishes. Ria insists that the asparagus stalks must be stored in a moist tea-cloth. She is right; that slows down the oxidation of the nutrients, I have discovered.
The first dozen were snapped up at lunch. Ah, the virtues of living only two-minutes away from your place of work on a bicycle; home for fresh asparagus on toast.
But two kilogrammes? Asparagus soup is in the planning. It's not at all difficult Ria tells me, and she is quite right; made in a jiffy.
Asparagus soup recipes take no time at all to prepare, especially if you have frozen chicken-bones broth all ready in the freezer. Avoid cubes; they are loaded with chemicals and they give me serious indigestion. There is risk of tumours if you use them regularly.
Prepare vegetables: 5-minutes
Chicken bones bouillon: 1 hour (20 mins with a pressure-cooker)
Cooking time: 20-mins.
(30 mins max + bouillon preparation)

FOODS THAT LOWER CHOLESTEROL should daily be on the menu; then you can have your cream and eat it.
You first have to earn that cream by eating foods that lower cholesterol; mind you, asparagus and celery themselves are sure to be good for your blood profile
Where to start your asparagus soup
Does not look that fantastic, eh. But just remember, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. This asparagus soup recipe makes one very delicious meal.
Just drop a dollop of double-thick Jersey cream into your soup. If you are eating these kinds of foods every day, you will not have any worries about cholesterol.
But do beware of refined carbohydrate; it is the croutons that will disturb your blood-sugar and make you fat. The good fats help to keep down the high levels of glucose reaching the liver from the small intestine.
Chicken bone broth is rich in the precursors of cartilage. Harvard medical school research shows it's very effective in the treatment of recalcitrant-arthritis; it is a vital ingredient of our asparagus soup. For the vegetarian I would recommend a tablespoon of chickpeas and more herbs.
Do not dump your bones; freeze them.

Here are the back issues.
Even the best spinal adjustments, or medicine for that matter, won't save you from misery if you eat crap. Sorry to be brutal, but that is the way it is. And as the Dutch say, those who will not hear, must feel.
If you do not look after your body, just where do you plan to live, huh?
Rather follow my passion for choice-foods, made fast; they are delicious anyway. All the meal planning here is absolutely divine and you can prepare them in a jiffy. Making it look pretty is not high on my agenda, except when guests are coming.
Canned-soups incidentally have very large amounts of salt; make your own.
The onions incidentally are rich in phytochemicals that help stabilise blood glucose; read more about allicin benefits.
Aside: How many of us are putting off cooking from scratch because we are intimidated by the complexity and time it takes to make dishes that appear pretty like you see in all the books? Forget what it looks like, the proof of the soup is in the eating, not the looking.
Before bed, after you have finished your asparagus soup recipe.
Toss a cup of Garbanzo beans (chickpeas) into a pot, and cover with water. Then tomorrow you'll be able to make up some hummus to go with your Quaker Oats Recipes. Now that is got you guessing.
Chickpeas and oats are the top two anti-cholesterol foods.
We should all be trying to gradually replace
our cheese and red meat with legumes. But you will not find fresh green
lima beans in the shop. They are very easy to grow however. Sufferin

Heartburn in the middle of the night? Many folk find that bread and soup in the evening gives them severe heartburn. Perhaps you would like to try this
Gluten free bread recipe if our asparagus soup recipes gives you pain a couple hours after dinner.
Of course, soup without bread is an option, or less onion in
the soup, or simply enjoy for lunch. Perhaps also check out our indigestion heartburn page. There you will learn about kefir benefits; it supports the microbiome and actively inhibits the heliobacter that cause so much stomach pain.
If you are still getting heartburn, use less of the chicken bones bouillon; it is very rich.
Another delight is our Toscanini celery soup, also like asparagus rich in phytosterols, the cancer-prevention stuff, is this favourite of the maestro, the only food he would eat before a concert. He swore it calmed his finely pitched nerves; yours too?
Have you seen the film High Pitched incidentally? I loved it.
