Study Break…

April 30th, 2010

I’m knee deep in studying… but taking a short break to give you this random throw together from the fridge dish… a few days ago I made an asparagus soup (inspired by the much more amazing Zenchef Asparagus Soup). It was good but then today, I decided to add some orzo, olive oil and parmesan… Delicious!  mmm… a glass of red wine would be good… yes, yes, back to studying…

Asparagus Soup with Pasta

1 bunch of asparagus, broken into smaller pieces
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 in piece, ginger, chopped
1 pear, in smaller pieces
1 cup water/chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
salt and pepper
1/2 pound orzo, cooked
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup parmesan

1. Put a little olive oil in a pot, heat the garlic and ginger for a few minutes.
2. Add the asparagus, pear, and water. Bring to a boil.
3. Allow to simmer for about 20 minutes until the liquid has reduced.
4. Use a food processor or immersion blender, puree until smooth.
5. Mix with the orzo, olive oil, parmesan and lemon juice.
