    About this recipe: There's nothing like fresh asparagus when it's in season - take advantage!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 500g fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2.5cm pieces
    • 80g chopped onion
    • 400ml chicken stock
    • 30g butter
    • 2 tablespoons plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 pinch ground black pepper
    • 250ml milk
    • 125ml soured cream
    • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

    Method
    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. In a large saucepan, combine asparagus, chopped onion and 125ml of the chicken stock. Cover, and bring to the boil over high heat. Reduce heat, and simmer uncovered until asparagus is tender, about 12 minutes. Process the mixture in a blender to puree the vegetables. Set aside.
    2. In the same saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Stir in the flour, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly for 2 minutes. Whisk in the remaining chicken stock, and increase the heat to medium. Cook, stirring constantly until the mixture boils. Stir in the asparagus puree and the milk.
    3. Put the soured cream in a small bowl, and stir in a ladleful of the hot soup. Add the soured cream mixture and the lemon juice to the soup. Stir while heating the soup to serving temperature, but don't allow it to boil. Serve immediately.

    This is the best asparagus soup I've ever tasted, and I order it in many fine restaurants. Ignore everyone who has reviewed this recipe without making this recipe verbatum and tell you to add bacon, lettuce, tomato, potato, wine, rubbing alcohol, peanuts, pork, lighter fluid, etc etc. If they never followed the recipe, they shouldn't be reviewing it. Make it exactly as described and you won't be disappointed. After making it the first time, go ahead and add some chocolate chips or pine cones or whatever you think it needs, but review it based upon this recipe. It's a winner!  -  16 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This was so tasty we ran out and bought asparagus so we could make more! Remember that you can use the big asparagus that you wouldn't use otherwise because it's going to be pureed. Other than doubling the recipe the only thing I would change is that I would save the asparagus heads after sauteeing and use them as garnish instead of pureeing them. Excellent recipe!  -  05 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
