Cream of Asparagus

One of the main problems with sould is that it ususally makes enough to last a good week, which if your not a "let's have leftovers" person can get tiresome. Asparagus soup can be made with only 1 bunch of asparagus.

1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces

1 shallot (or half an onion), chopped

2 cups broth of choice (I usually use chicken)

1/2 a cup milk (or cream if youre feeling extravigant)

1 tbsp butter

white pepper

Saute shallot in butter til you get a nice golden color, add asapargus cook a couple more minutes. Add broth and bring to a boil, boil for 15 minutes. Scoop out the veg and put in the blender with a little water, til smooth. Pour back into the pot, add white pepper to taste, but be careful a little goes a long way.
