Ham and Asparagus Soup

Rainy days are perfectly spent at home with a bowl of soup.  Try this creamy broth with fresh asparagus - HAM AND ASPARAGUS SOUP. :-)

Serves 2
Prep Time 10 minutes

Cooking Time 15


  • 1 cup fresh asparagus, cut in 1-inch pieces
  • 1 pc carrot, julienned
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 pc onion, quartered
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • ½ cup low fat milk
  • ½ pc chicken bouillon cube, dissolved in 2 cups water
  • 3 pcs lean ham, cut in small squares
  • 1 cup canned mushrooms (I used the sliced type)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Fresh parsley, chopped

Cooking Procedure:
  1. Place asparagus in a large saucepan with enough water to cover it; cook until crisp-tender. 
  2. Drain asparagus and set aside.
  3. In a large heavy saucepan, sauté carrot in butter for 3-5 minutes.
  4. Add onions and sauté 2 minutes longer or until tender.
  5. Stir in flour.
  6. Gradually add milk. 
  7. Bring to a boil; boil and stir for 2 minutes. 
  8. Add chicken broth, ham, mushrooms and asparagus.
  9. Add salt and pepper. 
  10. Garnish with parsley.

I never really cooked any soup with fresh ingredients. It has always been instant or ready-to-cook for me. This one is for the books! :-) 

Try this dish to substitute your usual chicken soup. Yummm!
