This is a simple, flavourful spring recipe. The potatoes give it a creamy texture and the lemon juice gives it a yummy zing.


Ingredients: Serves 4

  • 1 tbsp olive oil or butter
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb asparagus, chopped
  • 1 lb white potatoes chopped
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 cup spinach
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice



  1. Heat the olive oil in a pot over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes or until translucent. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
  2. Add the asparagus, potatoes and stock to the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low, cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are soft.
