Cream of Asparagus Soup
Adding nonfat dry milk increases the 'creaminess' without adding extra fat to this tasty cream of asparagus soup seasoned with sherry.
1 red onion, sliced
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Nonfat Dry Milk
1 (12-ounce) can NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
1 1/2 cups milk
1 pound asparagus, chopped
1/4 cup sherry
- In a saucepan over medium heat, sauté sliced red onion in butter until soft. Stir in flour and powdered milk; cook until bubbly.
- Gradually add evaporated milk and milk, mixing well. Add chopped asparagus and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the carrots are tender, about 10 minutes.
- Place the soup in a food processor or blender and purée until smooth. Stir in sherry.
