  • 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 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 Equipment Needed

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.

Trimming Fresh Asparagus

Asparagus spears snap off naturally where they are tough. Simply bend the spear near the bottom end and it will break off at the right point. Or, remove an inch or so of the "woody" portion off the bottom of the stalks with a sharp knife.

Substitute

Substitute 4 cups small fresh broccoli florets for the asparagus.

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.
