Recipe: Creamy Roasted Asparagus & Leek Soup

How many ways can you use asparagus to create delicious Paleo Diet meals?  When we were kids, there were typically two cooking methods: steam until undercooked or steam until overcooked. Neither was much of a winner at the supper table. Asparagus has certainly improved its reputation since then and has become not just a favorite, but a necessary staple in the Paleo kitchen.  Our creamy soup recipe turns this nutrient packed veggie into the perfect soup to warm you up on a cool evening.  Serve it with a delicious Paleo salad, a side of fruit, and you’ve got an impressive dinner ready to serve!    Ingredients  1 lb asparagus, washed, ends trimmed, and roughly chopped  1 large leek, chopped  3 tablespoons coconut oil  1/4 cup minced shallots  black
