    Sandi (From CA)'s Note:

    When asparagus is in season you simply must make this soup. The rather exotic, bitter-tasting asparagus pairs amazingly well with the fresh, clean flavor of cilantro. If you can’t find tamari, substitute low-sodium soy sauce. From The Real Food Daily Cookbook: Really Fresh, Really Good, Really Vegetarian.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat the olive oil in a heavy stockpot over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, and garlic, and sauté for 8 minutes, or until the onion is translucent. Stir in the potato, basil, oregano, and cumin.
    2. 2
      Add the stock and bring to a simmer over high heat. Decrease the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes, or until the potato is almost tender. Add the asparagus stalks and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the asparagus is tender and the potato is very tender.
    3. 3
      Using a handheld immersion blender, purée the soup in the pot until smooth. Alternatively, working in batches, purée in a regular blender until smooth. Stir in the tamari, salt, and white pepper. Return the soup to a simmer, then stir in the cilantro.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, cook the reserved asparagus tips in a saucepan of boiling water for 1 minute, or until crisp-tender. Drain, then cut the asparagus tips in half lengthwise.
    5. 5
      Ladle the soup into individual bowls. Garnish with the asparagus tips and serve.
    6. 6
      The soup and uncooked asparagus tips will keep for 2 days, covered separately and refrigerated.
