So, trying to find my way through this Paleo commitment with some missteps. I realized I have been eating out too much and somehow had let a bundle of asparagus sit for a few too many days and much of it was less than attractive (I prefer it crisp). It was 10am and I hadn’t had breakfast and I love eggs so this is where my idea started.
I sauteed a large sweet onion, 2 diced carrots, 1 small hungarian pepper seeded, 1 red pepper julienned, and 2 cloves of garlic in a tablespoon of olive oil for 5 minutes. I then added 1/2 cup white wine, 4 large fresh sage leaves, fresh oregano and rosemary (I did not dice them I put them in whole), 1 tablespoon of butter, 1 bunch of asparagus diced, leaving 4-5 fresh stalks for garnish and sauteed for 15 minutes. I then fried 1 egg and 1 egg white in a separate pan. I placed fresh spinach down then a nice large scoop of the vegetables still hot and then topped with my egg and some fresh pepper. So yummy!
I added 4 cups of water and 1 1/2 tsps of Better than Boullon and let it blend together with some fresh pepper for 20 minutes, food processed it and yes, ASPARAGUS and RED PEPPER SOUP! no cheese, no cream or dairy! It was a little thin so adding in a few pieces of asparagus and fresh chives as garnish was perfect, you could even dice a half teaspoon of red pepper and put that on top too, how pretty the red and green would be! Enjoy it!
