Cooking Time15 min

Ingredients

  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 large celery stalk, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups asparagus, chopped
  • 4 cups ham stock or chicken stock (If using chicken stock, add 1/2 cup chopped ham)
  • 1 cup basmatti rice
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 package cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup whipping cream

Instructions

  1. In a large stock pot, saute the onion and celery in the olive oil for 3 to 5 minutes. Add the asparagus and stock. (If you are using chicken stock, add chopped ham during this step.) Add the basil and black ground pepper and bring to a boil. Simmer for about 5 minutes.

  2. Add the basmatti rice. Simmer the soup until the rice is cooked to your desired texture.

  3. Remove the pot from the heat and slowly stir in 1 cup of the whipping cream.

  4. In a smaller sauce pan, combine the remaining 1/2 cup of whipping cream with the cream cheese and whisk together over medium heat. Slowly stir this mixture into the soup.

  5. Return the soup to the burner and heat for another 5 minutes while slowly stirring. Serve immediately.
