Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Melt margarine in a heavy cooking pot. Add onion and celery; saute until tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in flour, mixing well. Cook for about 1 minute, stirring constantly. Do not burn, or let it go lumpy. Add water, chicken broth, and chicken soup base; stir until smooth. Bring to a boil. Add potato and asparagus. Reduce heat, and simmer for about 20 minutes.

  • Puree soup in a food processor or blender in batches. Return to pot.

  • Stir in half-and-half, soy sauce, and black and white pepper. Bring soup just to boil. Adjust seasonings to taste. Serve hot.
