I had a bundle of asparagus in my fridge that needed to be used. Plus I was going to be on a liquid diet for the next few days, so I knew what I wanted to make: soup! But I wanted to raise the protein content of the soup so I started looking for a Greek Yogurt based Asparagus soup. But I had no luck finding a recipe. I knew what I had to do, time to make my own.
