Flavorful! Nice and easy, with simple ingredients. I skipped reserving the tips of the asparagus and put them right in there. I too used the immersion blender. Only used 1 tablespoon of butter, omitted the oil. Also kept my soup thick with about 3 cups of broth, I added about 3/4 cup of evaporated milk at the end and skipped the sour cream. Thank you. I will be making this again.
This was very good! I added the tips in with the soup, subbed 7 scallions for the leeks, and used my immersion blender to blend it all. I added just 3 cups of low fat/sodium chicken broth, as I like my soups on the thicker side. The asparagus taste wasn't very strong after cooking, it reminded me a bit of split pea soup. Thanks for the recipe!
