Instant Creamy Asparagus Soup

Ingredient Notes

  • Milk—using non-fat milk makes this shelf-stable for longer, but you can use any dried milk alternative that you’d like. You can also just add heavy cream to the pot when making this fresh and leave out the powdered milk.
  • Arrowroot powder (I use this brand of arrowroot powder from Amazon). This works as a thickening agent, but you can substitute corn starch or other thickeners of your choosing.
  • Instant chicken bouillon – you can use vegetable bouillon, instead.
  • Asparagus powder — You can use whole dehydrated asparagus pieces, or a mixture of both.
  • Add extra dehydrated vegetables — I like adding dried, shredded carrots to the mixture.

Darcy’s Tips

  • To make this go a little faster, you can soak the asparagus pieces in the refrigerator in the broth/water before creating the soup.
  • Alternatively, cook the soup with fresh asparagus minus the milk. Dehydrate soup using lipped fruit leather sheets, then powder. This will make a more ‘instant’ soup when rehydrated.
  • This meal serves four.

Equipment

  • 1 Saucepan

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup dry milk non-fat
  • 1/8 cup arrowroot powder
  • 1/8 cup instant chicken bouillon
  • 1/4 tsp dried onion flakes
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp white pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/3 C asparagus powder – OR-
  • 1 C dehydrated asparagus pieces
  • 4 C chicken broth or water

Instructions

  • Bring 4 Cups of water or broth to a boil
  • Add the ingredients
  • Allow to simmer until all powders are incorporated or the asparagus pieces are rehydrated and fully cooked

Darcy’s Tips

You can substitute 1 cup of asparagus pieces for the asparagus powder if you wish.
Serves 4. Mix makes approximately 3/4 of a cup if you are doing this in bulk.
If you want a truly ‘instant’ soup, you can create the soup without the milk powder, dry it in a fruit leather sheet, grind it and add the powder at that point. There will be a truly integrated soup without any of the solids left behind.
Serve with some thinned sour cream or crema swirled into the top.
