  • Melt butter in medium saucepan on medium heat. Add leeks; cook 5 min. or until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in garlic; cook and stir 2 min. Add asparagus, broth and water; stir. Simmer on medium-low heat 5 min. or until asparagus is crisp-tender. Stir in salt and pepper.
  • Mix cream cheese spread and milk until well blended.
  • Process asparagus mixture in food processor until smooth. Pour into 4 soup bowls. Add cream cheese mixture; swirl gently with spoon.

Special Extra

Garnish with additional cooked asparagus tips just before serving.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with a mixed green salad and whole grain roll to round out the meal.

Use a Blender

No food processor? Use a blender instead. Blend asparagus mixture, in batches, in blender until smooth, securing lid with your hand while blending. Or, use an immersion blender right in the saucepan.
