Cheesy Potato Asparagus Soup

Cheesy asparagus potato soup is an inexpensive, nutritional meal. It contains healthy green vegetables, protein from the Colby cheese and vitamin D from the milk. With so many families where both parents work, the need for meals that are nutritional and yet easy to make is on the rise. According to Dr. Mercola of Mercola.com, “Asparagus is a good source of vitamins A, C and E, B-complex vitamins, potassium and zinc. It is also high in glutathione, an important anticarcinogen a chemical that reduces the chance and severity of cancer.”
