    1. 1
      Slice off the asparagus tips about 2" from the end. Cut them into 1/2" pieces and reserve them. Cut the remaining stalks into 1" pieces.
    2. 2
      Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the leeks and cook for 5 minutes, or until soft. Add 1 1/2 cups of the stock, broth or water. Stir in the dill if using and sliced asparagus. Cook for 8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes, or until the asparagus is tender.
    3. 3
      Remove from the heat and add the remaining 1/2 cup stock, broth or water. Pour into a blender, 2 cups at a time, and process until pureed. Return to the pot, add the reserved asparagus tips, and cook for 1 minute, or until hot throughout.
    4. 4
      Divide among 4 bowls. Top each portion with the nutmeg.

      Tasty and delicious soup! I really like homemade soup and had never made asparagus soup before. I will be making this again :) I used chicken stock and my immersion blender so it may be a little chunkier than usual. I love it! Made for Photo Tag. Thanks!
