A soothing soup of onions, potatoes and asparagus fortified with nutritious vegetable stock, the Asparagus Soup has a very creamy feel about it, thanks to being boiled with low-fat milk. Asparagus is a great soup ingredient as it is a low-calorie vegetable with a good amount of fibre, which helps to lower LDL cholesterol, thus protecting the heart. To add to the goodness of this soup, you can use olive oil to sauté the onions, as it is rich in vitamin E, a potent antioxidant, and mono-unsaturated fatty acids that help reduce the risk of heart diseases by lowering blood cholesterol levels.
