  • 1 Onion thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp Butter
  • 4-5 c Chicken broth
  • 1/2 c Heavy Cream
  • 1-2 Tbsp Lemon juice
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cut asparagus into 1-inch pieces.
  • Heat a medium pot with butter on the stove over medium high heat.
  • Add asparagus and onion and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add 4 cups of broth, cover with a lid, and bring it to a boil.
  • Once it reaches a boil reduce it to a simmer and let cook for 20 minutes or until vegetables are extremely soft.
  • Remove pot from heat and use a stick blender to puree the contents until it is smooth.
