      This is a wonderful recipe. So healthy and green. It was very easy to do. What is great is that there is no cream in it. We ate it without the parmesan because I forgot to add it. And we liked it a lot even without it. Thanks Lorrie :) Made for healthy tag game

      I thought this was a pretty good soup. I don't like it with the cooked tips added though, I'd prefer it all blended up. I also thought the cheese at the end was very important and really helped bring the flavors together. I was trying to avoid using it at the beginning and didn't think it was nearly as good. Thanks for sharing this recipe! :)

      Thick and tasty. It pays to wait until blending the vegetables before seasoning. The taste of the asparagus really comes through after blending. I used all of one of the leeks and just the white bit of the other. Not sure if I was supposed to just use the white bits, in which case the soup wouldn't have turned out so green. I like it green. Ate two big bowls of it!
