Bunch of organic asparagus $4.66

Large white onion (not organic) $1.81

Organic fresh basil $2.29

Knorr* Vegetable broth 900 ml $2.24

Total: $11

2 Tablespoons olive oil

1 Bay leaf

Fresh cracked pepper

No salt needed

*I used this brand because it was on sale at IGA and I’m on a budget and it’s 2 dollars cheaper than an organic alternative. It does have a fairly high sodium content (30% per cup) & Lycopene? Obviously if you want to use homemade it’ll be even better!

Sautee chopped onion and asparagus for about 25 minutes or until soft with a bit of colour.  Add carton of vegetable stock, bay leaf and cracked pepper and bring to boil.Then reduce and simmer 10 more minutes.  Take off the heat, remove the bay leaf and ladle into your blender.  Toss in 5 large torn basil leaves and blend the sh*% out of it…seriously a long time.  Comes out blissfully green and smooth…so decadent and it only cost me $11!  I really hope everyone makes this soup 🙂
