  1. Place asparagus and onion in a saucepan with 1/2 cup vegetable broth. Bring the broth to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer until the vegetables are tender.
  2. Reserve a few asparagus tips for garnish. Place remaining vegetable mixture in an electric blender and puree until smooth.
  3. Melt butter in the pan that was used for simmering the asparagus and onions. Stir while sprinkling flour, salt, and pepper into the butter. Do not let the flour brown. Allow the mixture to cook only 2 minutes. Stir in remaining 1 1/4 cups vegetable broth and increase the heat. Continue stirring until the mixture comes to a boil.
  4. Stir the vegetable puree and milk into the saucepan. Whisk yogurt into the mixture, followed by lemon juice. Stir until heated through, then ladle into bowls. Garnish with reserved asparagus tips. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if desired.

All you can taste is the soy milk...what a waste of good asparagus! Would otherwise be worth eating.

This is EXCELLENT! I've made it maybe 6 times, and every time, I surprise myself with how good it is. I bought an immersion blender recently. It's just the $13 Proctor Silex model - nothing f...

Delicious! I used 2% milk instead of soy and used 1/8 tsp onion powder instead of regular onion. I also only pureed 3/4 the asparagus and cut the rest in 1 inch sections and added it to the mixt...

Good, but you really need a powerful food processor or blender. Mine just didn't really get the job done, and while the flavor was good, the texture was awkward. The yogurt, lemon, and cheese ...
