Early Spring Asparagus Soup

0 of 5 53 Minutes

Finally spring is here and not a moment too soon either! I like to make Asparagus Soup as soon as the really good asparagus comes into the market. The young spears are tender enough to purée easily, and the result is smooth and creamy. The soup is wonderful in any season, actually, as asparagus is usually available year-round in most markets. You can always trim the spears with a vegetable peeler if the ends look at all fibrous.
