Healthy Asparagus recipe

Storing idea:

Allow soup to cool and pour into a plastic container with a tight lid, store in your freezer. When ready to use, thaw soup at room temperature, on slow heat in a medium-size pot or in microwave. Serve hot, garnished with chopped cilantro or parsley.

Baby food idea:

Allow soup to cool and drain some broth according to your preferred consistency for baby food. Blend with hand blender and store in sterilized 4-ounce or 6-ounce glass jars. If you are planning to use the soup as baby food for a baby younger than one year old, refrain from using salt.
