Asparagus Elixir: A recipe

From a chapter in my book on Foods for Healing & Regeneration

A drink or soup for Gods and mortals alike.

Whenever I serve this I’m always rewarded with a big grateful sigh. “WOW! What have you made and how do I make it?”

Asparagus Elixir

8 stalks of asparagus (wooded bases removed)
3 cups best quality water
1 teaspoon ghee
1 teaspoon turmeric
pinch of salt to taste

Place water in a saucepan with steamer and bring to boil.

Break the asparagus stalks with your hands into 2 or 3 pieces and place into the pan, steaming until tender and retaining its green colour.

Place asparagus in a blender with about 1 cup of the cooking water of the asparagus. Add ghee, turmeric and sea salt. Blend until smooth.

Add more water for a thinner lighter drink or soup.

This is a wonderful healing drink or soup that can be enjoyed at any time of the day.
