About this recipe:Velvety asparagus soup, lovely green colour, great with crunchy rolls. My friend gave me this recipe, it originally used chicken stock. When my daughter became vegetarian, I modified it with vegetable stock instead! It also doubles easily. This soup will tempt even asparagus haters!
1 onion, chopped
500g fresh asparagus, trimmed and coarsely chopped
250ml vegetable stock
1 dash garlic powder, or 1 clove minced garlic
1 dash white pepper
250ml semi-skimmed milk

Return mixture to microwave safe dish, stir in milk and microwave until heated through.
I don't use microwave when cooking, so I found this recipe a bit strange. Cooked in a saucepan, very happy with the result! Good to add a bit of Parmezan cheese for an extra flavour and creamy taste - 15 May 2012
