I recently made two dishes that turned out looking like green goo, or slime, about the color of Shrek. Appetizing, huh? While they looked suspicious, they were actually quite delicious.
The first of my green slime dishes was a healthy version of cream of asparagus soup. Inspired by http://blogilates.com/category/recipe-index/healthy-side-dishes, it was actually very simple. First I boiled vegetable stock and cooked a bunch of fresh asparagus on the stove until tender. Next I used my blender to puree the asparagus along some of the water it was boiled in and some chopped onion. See pic above. After the mixture was smooth, I put it back in a pot and it went back on the stove to stay warm while I stirred in a container of plain Greek yogurt. After seasoning with salt, pepper, cayenne, and some fresh cilantro, it was ready to be devoured. And devoured it was.
