Serves 4 | 28 -35 min
750 g fresh asparagus
2 onions, thinly sliced
1 litre stock
3 tablespoons olive oil
125 g cream cheese
Place the oil and onion in a microwaveable dish.
Cook uncovered for 3-4 minutes at 750 W.
Cut off the asparagus tips and set aside.
Cut the asparagus spears into 5 cm slices, making sure you
discard the woody end, and combine with the onion. Cook
uncovered for 5 minutes at 750 W.
Add the stock, cover, and cook for a further
15-20 minutes at 500 W, stirring from time to time.
Stir in the cream cheese and blend until you are left
with a smooth creamy mixture.
Add the asparagus tips. Heat at 750 W for 5-6 minutes. Season to
taste with salt and pepper.
An extra special touch:
If you like the flavour, when you add the asparagus tips you may
also sprinkle in two tablespoons of dill.
