Chicken and Asparagus with a Tarragon White Wine Sauce

Standard

Hello blog readers.  It’s been awhile since my last post (6 months to be exact) and it’s because my life has been really busy.  I had a very busy summer and the start of the fall has been busy as well.  I am currently enrolled at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition training to be a Holistic Health Counselor.  That has consumed a lot of my free time so this is why I have neglected the blog.  One of the things we are learning about is setting goals and following through with those goals.  So I have made it a goal to make a post for every recipe that I have photos for and to keep this blog up-to-date.

I wanted to start with something comforting and easy to make.  I made this a few weeks ago.  I had most of the ingredients on hand.  This recipe is French influenced but it’s very light and healthy but hearty at the same time.

I crated this recipe to go along with the Mustard Glazed Salmon.  The asparagus was on sale at the store and I wanted to do something more than just boil or steam them. I had half of a red onion left over in the fridge from another recipe but feel free to use any type of onion.

Asparagus and Potato Soup

Asparagus and potatoes are great as side dishes, but they are also delicious made into a creamy soup.  This soup is also healthy since it is only 133 calories per serving (most of those calories come from the potatoes).  I stumbled upon this recipe in the recipe book my mom made for me.  I have never made this before but I was in the mood for soup and I wanted to try something new.  The end results surprised me and the soup had a really nice flavor and was also very hearty.
