About this recipe: There's nothing like fresh asparagus when it's in season - take advantage!
very nice and tastey soup, however if i were to make it again i would add a whole onion and i would sieve the soup before serving. having said that it was enjoyed by the whole family - 05 Nov 2009
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)
