Raw Food Recipe: Asparagus Soup

serves 2 ~ $2.94 per serving
ingredients
  • 12 spears asparagus ($1.99)
  • 8 oz mushrooms ($2.29)
  • 2 avocados ($1.49)
  • 1 medium onion ($.10)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups water
The
flavor and color of this could be intensified by first dehydrating the
asparagus and mushrooms, though I skipped that step because I wanted something lighter. 
Puree all ingredients in a blender until very smooth. Garnish with a few pieces of chopped onions, mushrooms and asparagus.

    This is too perfect- Asparagus was on sale this week, so I took the plunge and bought two pounds. Now I know just how to use it!

      Hi Cat, I shop at the one grocery store in my little rural town in Michigan. All my prices are what I actually pay. I usually buy things on sale and never shop at Whole Foods, etc.

      What area are you shopping in? I'd love to hear about it!

      Raw asparagus tastes awesome! I like it even better than cooked … especially when it's really fresh.

      Raw asparagus is delicious. I haven't tried this soup yet (however it looks delicious), but I eat raw asparagus all the time right out of our garden patch. Really yummy.
