2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/3 cup green onions, chopped 
1 cup carrots, thinly sliced 
1 cup asparagus, chopped 
2 cups chicken or light vegetable broth 
2-3 tablespoons lemon juice 
1/8 teaspoon salt 
1/2 cup watercress or spinach, torn
2-4 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped 
Fresh basil
Grated Swiss cheese or Parmesan cheese

In a soup pot, saute garlic in 1 tbsp olive oil until golden, about 1 minute.  Add green onions and carrots and saute 5-7 minutes.  Add asparagus, broth, lemon juice, and salt and cook gently until asparagus is just barely tender (do not overcook).  Stir in greens and parsley and heat through, 1-2 minutes. 

Garnish with chopped fresh basil and grated Swiss or Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
