Asparagus Soup

If you’re looking for more ways to enjoy asparagus, try this nourishing Asparagus Soup. This recipe lets asparagus speak for itself, while offering accents of lemon and herbs to bring out its natural flavor. It’s a lovely, light choice all on its own, served alongside a flavorful salad, or alongside another dish of your choice after the 3:6:9 Cleanse.

This delicious recipe is one of over 75 recipes in the new book, Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal: Healing Plans for Sufferers of Anxiety, Depression, Acne, Eczema, Lyme, Gut Problems, Brain Fog, Weight Issues, Migraines, Bloating, Vertigo, Psoriasis, Cysts, Fatigue, PCOS, Fibroids, UTI, Endometriosis & Autoimmune.

Asparagus provides a wealth of flavonoids, many of them undiscovered or unstudied, that are highly anti-inflammatory; they act as natural aspirin and soothe a hot, overburdened, struggling liver. The liver’s ability to cleanse increases greatly from this calming effect. Asparagus brings order to a chaotic, sick liver. The liver’s immune system strengthens instantly from asparagus. It increases bile production yet doesn’t allow the liver to overwork itself in producing bile. Asparagus helps dislodge fat cells, expelling them from the liver, and helps rejuvenate the liver’s deep, inner core. Asparagus is one of the most important liver-healing foods. Consider putting it on the menu at least a few times a week.

Asparagus Soup

Ingredients:
1 cup chopped onions or leeks
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 pounds asparagus, ends trimmed and chopped
3 cups water or Liver Rescue Broth (recipe on page 394)
1 teaspoon dried thyme or basil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
Asparagus ribbons, for garnish (optional)

Directions:
Place a large ceramic nonstick pot on medium-high heat and add the onion and garlic. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until the onion is translucent, adding a spoonful of water if needed. Add the chopped asparagus and cook for a further 3 minutes, until the asparagus begins to soften.

Add the water or Liver Rescue Broth, dried thyme, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, until the asparagus is very tender.

Ladle the soup into a blender and blend until smooth, letting steam escape as needed (you might need to do this in batches). Alternatively, you can use an immersion blender for this.

Pour the soup back in the pot and bring to simmer. Taste and adjust seasoning. Divide between bowls. If desired, use a vegetable peeler to create asparagus ribbons as garnish. Serve immediately.


Tips:
• If you have this soup on Day 9 of the Simplified 3:6:9 Cleanse, skip the garnish of asparagus ribbons and just enjoy the blended soup.

• When choosing between water and Liver Rescue Broth for the ingredients, keep in mind that the broth will produce a richer flavor. Store-bought vegetable stock isn’t called for because it’s very difficult to find a variety that’s free from oil, salt, natural flavors, and/or other additives. For convenience, make a batch of Liver Rescue Broth in advance and freeze it (consider ice cube trays for easy thawing) so you have it on hand for recipes like these.
