  1. Roasted Asparagus & Onion

    • On a skillet, heat your olive oil and butter, then add in your onions.
    • Season with salt to draw out the onion’s moisture, then add in your asparagus.
    • Toss them for about 2 minutes, or until the onion caramelises and the asparagus changes colour.
    • Set aside and save some asparagus heads for garnishing later.
  2. Barley

    • Pour 1 cup of water in a pot.
    • Add in some salt and 1 tsp of Knorr Aromat Seasoning Powder.
    • Place in your pearl barley, and bring to a boil over medium heat, adding water if necessary.
    • Let it simmer for about 40 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. Set aside.
  3. Making the Soup

    • Add in your roasted asparagus and onion mixture into a pot under medium heat.
    • Add Knorr Potato Flakes.
    • Pour in your water and let it simmer for 8-10 minutes.
    • When the vegetables are soft, remove from heat and place in the blender. (If your blender is made of plastic, let the mixture cool first before pouring it in.)
    • Blend until smooth and transfer back to the pot. Let the soup simmer over medium to low heat.
    • Season with Knorr Aromat Seasoning Powder, and salt and pepper.
    • Bring to a boil, turn off the heat.
    • Add in your barley and mix together.
