  • Where did I find it?

Creamy Asparagus Leek Soup, Molly Patrick, Clean Food Dirty Girl

  • Why do I like it?

Clean Food, Dirty Girl is one of my favorite sites.  Molly Patrick has a great sense of humor and is really down to earth about healthy eating.  She doesn't nag or preach perfection.  Her recipes are healthy and tasty.  This soup can be prepared quickly.  It is light and flavorful.

  • Any recipe notes or tweaks?

I wanted the flavor to be a bit more intense so I decreased the amount of water by 1/4 cup. Additionally, I measured out the garlic, salt and pepper to get a more precise recipe. Used a bit less garlic than the 5 cloves the original recipe calls for. In the end, I added 1 tablespoon lemon juice to finish the soup.
