Low Fat, Fat-Free, Low in Saturated Fat, Low Cholesterol, Cholesterol-Free, Trans-fat Free, High Fiber, Very low in sodium, Low Sodium


2 pounds asparagus
trimmed, cut into 1" pieces
2 cups vegetable stock
1 each sweet red bell peppers
roasted, diced
1 can milk, skim, evaporated
1 x black pepper
to taste


  1. Place asparagus and broth into 4 qt pan and simmer for 15 min., until tender.

  2. Purée asparagus/broth in blender. Take out some pieces for a chunkier consistency if you wish.

  3. Put purée back in pan and add red pepper, any reserved asparagus, black pepper, and can of milk.

  4. Heat until thickened to your liking.

NOTE: You can add some thickener(flour, cornstarch) to hasten the process. I started the pepper roasting at about the same time as the the asparagus, and it worked out fine to add to soup.

Serve with a salad and hearty bread!
