Posts Tagged ‘asparagus’

Last night, thinking that I was going to be starting the Master Cleanse today, I wanted to use up a bunch of veggies in my fridge that were on their way out. I had a big bunch of asparagus and a pack of tarragon, as well as a giant zucchini (seriously, it was like 14 inches long and 2 inches in girth…ew…girth…) So, I googled “asparagus tarragon” (I love you, google) and found this recipe!

That recipe served as the inspiration for my soup. I added the zucchini, and also shallots and garlic (I can’t cook without garlic). I loved the idea of browning all the veggies really well to develop that nice flavour before blending it down into a nice smooth soup. Once they’re all golden and delicious, add some stock (I used veggie) and bring it to a boil. Then let it cool down, pop it in the blender and blend til smooth. Finally, warm it back up to serve & eat! It really couldn’t be easier!!

I thought this soup was delicious, and better yet, so did Benji! :) Tarragon is a new frontier for me; I’ve never cooked with it, or really experienced its flavour. It really reminded me of licorice while it was raw, but once cooked down, it had a totally different flavour (which was a good thing if you ask me, cuz I’m not a big fan of licorice).

All in all, a successful dinner! Easy, yummy, healthy and resourceful! No veggies went to waste and all bellies were filled! :)
