This is an easy soup that is very delicious. Besides the salt and pepper, this soup only has 4 ingredients!
This recipe makes approximately 3.5 cups of soup. Each cup of soup has approximately 4 grams of net carbs and 109 calories.
I made this in my 5 quart slow cooker.
2 cups of chicken broth [adds 0 g. net carbs and 30 calories]
1 pound of asparagus (washed, trimmed and chopped into thirds) [adds 8.1 g. net carbs and 91 cal.]
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion [adds 6 g. net carbs and 58 calories]
2 tablespoons of butter [adds 204 calories] (I used salted butter)
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
Combine all of the ingredients in your slow cooker. Cook for 4 hours on high or until the asparagus is very tender. Completely puree the soup with a blender.
I use an immersion / stick blender for all of my soups. I like it because you blend the soup right in the pot you cooked it in. The blender part comes off and goes right into the dishwasher. This is the stick blender I use:
