Cream of Asparagus Soup

Comments : 1 Posted in : Soups on by : TetonTrekker Tags: , , ,

When I first signed up to be a Pampered Chef Consultant I had the opportunity to get the Deluxe Cooking Blender for 60% off. At first I thought “what would I do with another blender”, I had just bought a new, non cooking, blender a year prior. Then decided that if I’m going to sell it I’m going to learn to use it. WOW! So glad I made that decision.

The powerful motor in the Pampered Chef Deluxe Cooking Blender blends a professional quality, smooth frozen Margarita. No ice chunks! It makes nut butters, smoothies, alternative milks, jams, and SOUP! With eight preprogrammed settings and two custom settings, there’s no guesswork.

One of the things that kept me from making my own creamed soups is the babysitting in the kitchen. There was a lot of time involved to make just a few cups of soup, time I didn’t have. I love that I can throw everything in one vessel, press a button, and walk away.

The cookbook that came with my new PC DCB has lots of yummy looking recipes, but I like to cook with things I usually buy and are in my fridge or pantry, no extra shopping. My cousin has a foodie blog I subscribe to, The Lazy Gastronome.  She had posted a Cream of Asparagus Soup recipe I had been wanting to try, so I winged it in the DCB. WOW! Easy and delicious. This is the soup I make most often and everyone wants the recipe. Thank you CUZ!
