Trim the coarse ends of the asparagus and cut asparagus into 2.5cm pieces. In a medium frying pan over medium high heat, saute the asparagus in 250ml stock for about 7 minutes or until tender.
Meanwhile, in a large saucepan over medium high heat, melt the margarine and remove from heat. Add the flour and stir well until smooth. Gradually add the remaining stock. Return the saucepan to the heat and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened.
Add the single cream, salt, pepper and cooked asparagus with liquid. Stir well and heat thoroughly. Serve hot and enjoy!
