Cream of Broccoli & Asparagus Soup

So I had some fresh broccoli and asparagus that I didn't think I would use before it went bad. So I got to thinking and thought that the combination would be good. This is the recipe.

Cream of Broccoli & Asparagus Soup

¾ cup diced red onion

1 cup diced celery

(sauté for a few minutes in butter and olive oil and salt & pepper)


4 cup broccoli pieces

2 ½ cup asparagus pieces

Cook for about 5-10 minutes


5 cups chicken broth

Simmer for about 30 minutes until the veggies are tender

Place all ingredients in blender (in batches)


2 cups milk

1/3 cup flour

Simmer for 10 minutes

Add some pepper to taste

Add ½ package of cream cheese

Omg, you are either a genius or we both have weird tastes. I also have B & A on hand and thought they should make a good soup.I would not have thought of the cream cheese, but as it turns out I have a little of that in need of use . I will try it right now.
