You cook the chopped asparagus in water in the microwave until tender and rinse in cold water. Add chopped onions(green onions or garlic greens) mushrooms, tomatoes, red peppers and hard boiled eggs cut up and zesty Italian dressing, or you can make your own homemade dressing. Also add balsamic vinegar for a bit more zest.

Wash and scrape asparagus.
Chop asparagus into 2” pieces. Set tips aside for garnish.
Place asparagus, chopped onion, water, and chicken OXO into a pot. Add a little salt and pepper.
Cover and simmer 10-15 minutes until asparagus is tender.
Cool slightly and put the asparagus broth into a blender. (It will require more than one batch.)
Blend each batch until smooth
In a large pot, melt butter. (I use the pot used to cook the asparagus.)
Stir in flour.
Add milk and whisk until thickened.
Add blended asparagus broth and cook until slightly thickened.
Microwave or steam the asparagus tips.

Grated parmesan cheese and/or croutons can be added as an additional garnish.
