It never ceases to amaze me how turned off a person can be by the color of a food. How if I make this soup, which smells and tastes so delicious, half of those I serve it to won't try it, simply for it's green color. Many vegetables are green, fruits are green, life itself is the most vibrant when green - what makes a soup so disgusting?

Asparagus Roasted Soup

Ingredients:
- 3 1/2 cups vegetable broth
- 2 1/4 lbs of asparagus, properly cleaned and trimmed
- 8 crushed garlic cloves
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 cup milk

Directions:
In a bowl, combine the garlic and asparagus, and coat with the oil, salt, and pepper, then arrange on a baking sheet. Bake with a high flame for ten minutes, then mash into a paste using a large mortar and pestle. Combine paste with the broth and milk in a large stock pot, and heat over a medium flame for twenty minutes, stirring frequently. Garnish if desired.
