This soup was such a lovely surprise. I was looking for something low-fat that would contribute to a soup and sandwich lunch and I think I found something that’s a lot more.
The original recipe I found calls for leeks and I forgot about them when I was making my grocery list so it had to go without. Frankly, I didn’t miss them at all. I made a few other tweaks with portions and ratios and the final product was so much better than my expectations it was pleasantly surprising.
The asparagus itself it a delicate flavor and I was almost afraid that it would be squashed by the tang of the sour cream and the sharp earthiness of the tarragon. But each flavor complimented the others so nicely that once it was pureed my six year old ate two servings of it and begged for more. Seriously.
The best part? Each serving has only 116 calories and 5 grams of fat. Low-fat, low-calorie, high in taste. My holy trinity… of the moment at least.
