 Asparagus Vegetable Soup
 (ordinarily I would only eat my asparagus lightly  steame with garlic, but
 sometimes I have so much on hand..)
 5 C water or stock
 1/4 C uncooked brown rice
 2 potatoes, sliced, peepled ot not as you prefer
 1 carrot, sliced
 2 leeks, washed very very carefully
 1 stalk celery
 1 t thyme dried
 1 t dried dill weed
 10 stalks of asparagus, sliced.  use as much of it as you can
 2 C chpped spinach, preferably fresh
 white pepper
 boil water,  add rice, potatoes and carrots cook til potatoes are tender
 (not cooked through but tender).  Add everything except the asparagus tips.
 Simmer til rice and ptoatoes are cooked through.  Add the asparagus tips
 and wilt them.
 Variations: again terrific on a hot day with plain nonfat yoghurt.  can use
