Asparagus Leek Soup



A few people have been asking for recipes lately. So I'm putting them up here for all to see. I get most of mine from searching pinterest or google searches and adapt them however. 

Asparagus Leek Soup


   1 large leek, sliced thin
   2 large cloves of garlic, minced
   3 T. olive oil
   1 lb. asparagus
   32 oz. vegetable stock
   salt/pepper
Saute the sliced leek and garlic in olive oil until tender.  Steam asparagus until crisp tender.  Place leek/garlic mixture and asparagus into large stockpot.  Add vegetable stock.  Cook over medium heat 15-20 minutes until asparagus is soft.  Using hand/immersion blender, puree until smooth.  Add salt and pepper to taste.
I ate it with 2 scrambled egg whites with salsa on top, half and apple, and some mozzarella cheese.
