Creamy Roasted Asparagus Soup

A creamy soup packed full of flavor from a quick roast in the oven with garlic and onions. The thickness and creaminess come from a surprising, low-fat, protein rich ingredient and the asparagus adds Vitamin K, Folate and anti-inflammatory properties. This recipe also works great with broccoli!
