Asparagus soup

    35 min

    Velvety asparagus soup, lovely green colour, great with crunchy rolls. My friend gave me this recipe, it originally used chicken stock. When my daughter became vegetarian, I modified it with vegetable stock instead! It also doubles easily. This soup will tempt even asparagus haters!

    Used different ingredients. I added courgettes to this soup as well and cooked it in a saucepan rather than the microwave.  -  12 Mar 2010


    I don't use microwave when cooking, so I found this recipe a bit strange. Cooked in a saucepan, very happy with the result! Good to add a bit of Parmezan cheese for an extra flavour and creamy taste  -  15 May 2012


    Very easy to do and tasted absolutley gorgeous. It was the nicest tasting soup I've had in a long time.  -  12 Mar 2010
