Use your leftovers: asparagus soup

We all hate to waste food right? Here's a trick to help you use the hard and fibrous part of asparagus.

Cook them in water with a bit of rice. Purée everything in a blender. You can also add a few leaves of spinach in the blender to add colour. Pass the mixture through a sieve to remove the fibres. Season. And voila: asparagus soup!

You can use the same recipe for many other vegetables such as wilted lettuce or broccoli stems.

Do not do this... see my later post. It can break your blender!
