2 lb (1 k) green asparagus, trimmed, cut in in (1 cm) pieces
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 leek (white part) chopped
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon oil
5 cups chicken broth
cup undiluted evaporated milk or heavy cream

Melt 2 tablespoons butter and oil in a medium size saucepan at low heat. Add onion and leek and cook until tender. Add asparagus and season to taste. Cook stirring for 5 minutes.
