Easy Broccoli Asparagus soup

What could be better on a cold winter day than a low cal, low fat, super healthy soup!
Here is a very easy recipe for my favorite green soup:

1 bunch broccoli chopped

3/4 lb. asparagus, fresh or frozen (about 15-18 sprigs fresh)

1/3 c. chopped onion

2 c. low sodium vegetable broth

1-2 cloves garlic, pressed

1/4 tsp. each of: black pepper, cumin, thyme

2 tbsp. butter or olive oil

2 tbsp.flour

1 c. nonfat milk

Boil broth, broccoli and asparagus, and onion until tender. Let cool slightly. Puree in blender or food processor. Set aside.

In a saucepan, melt butter or olive oil. Whisk in flour until flour is dissolved, stirring constantly. Slowly stir in milk and continue to whisk for 2 minutes or until
smooth. Add garlic and spices, then stir in broccoli/asparagus and let cook on medium for 5-10 more minutes.

Makes 4 servings (1 cup each).
