I am sorry to have to say that I found this recipe very bland and uninteresting.
Since it was a raw nasty day and I had frozen asparagus in the freezer, I decided to make this soup. I thought it was also a good way to get my GS to eat vegetables. I used 1 cup heavy cream and 2 cups whole milk. I'm glad my chef trained DD was here as I had no idea about the process of tempering an egg and probably would have messed up that part. All and all it was an easy soup to make and I like the touch of having the asparagus tips in the soup. I feel that the soup would benefit with the addition of garlic. Made for Winter Photo tag.
Made today for a soup and sandwiches lunch. Easy and fairly quick to put together and really good instructions. The delicate flavour of the asparagus really came through. Adults liked this more than the kids. Thanks.
Wonderful soup! Made it with fresh asparagus, rice milk and arrowroot starch instead of the flour, and it turned out perfectly. Creamy and smooth - absolutely delicious! Thanks for posting this winner! Made for ZWT6 Germany/Benelux.
