Asparagus harvest despite my lack of gardening.

It´s raining this weekend so we have not gotten out to do our gardening that we need to get done. My veggie beds are still empty and my plants are still in the window. Carrots are not planted neither are any of the things that can´t be started indoors.

My asparagus is sprouting though because it was planted 3 years ago and I´ve made my first pot of asparagus soup. It was very, very good. I start with chopping the asparagus into small peaces up to the last 2 inches that I leave to ad at the end. I also cut 2 tablespoons of onion and I fry both the asparagus and the onion in olive oil until the onion is caramelized.

Then I add water and let it simmer for 30 min. I add some more water and some half and half and some better than bullion and the tops of the asparagus and simmer for 10 min. Serve!

It was delish!
