Ingredients

  • 5.3 ounce serving provides 60% of the recommended daily allowance for folacin which is necessary for blood cell formation, growth, and prevention of liver disease. It is also very low in sodium, a good source of potassium, fiber, thiamine, Vitamin B6, one of the richest sources of rutin, a compound which strengthens capillary walls and contains glutathione (GSH) - which is one of the most potent anti-carcinogens and antioxidants found within the body. GSH is used to detoxify carcinogenic electrophiles and protect cells from oxidative damage, thereby preventing damage to DNA and other macromolecules. Thus, GSH acts as an initial and primary defense against chemicals that can cause cell transformation and/or cell death. Asparagus had the highest GSH content of the several foods tested. (source)
  • 20 minutes of eating asparagus and you go the bathroom to pee – it is known to cause a rather strange smell in the urine of those who consume it. WHAT!!?? You say. It’s true! Your body breaks down asparagus during digestion into sulfur-containing chemicals that give your urine a distinctive odor.
  • 2 or 3 pieces – RESERVE the tips separately! We’re going to cook the tips separately last to put on top of the finished soup.
  • 4 small bowls or
  • 2 large bowls
  • 1 tsp ghee or coconut oil
  • 1 large bunch of fresh asparagus (break into small/medium sized pieces and RESERVE TIPS for garnish!)
  • 1/4 of a small onion – chopped
  • 1 cup vegetable stock (I make mine by adding 1 TB. Herbamare to 1 cup water – EASY!)
  • 1/2 cup water ( use less for a thicker soup, can always add more at the end if need be).
