    Annetty's Note:

    This is a great soup, very tasty, you can have it as a filling soup during the week or its also great for the starter of a dinner party. DH really enjoys this soup even though he's not a great fan of Asparagus. The recipe was originally from the 'Australian Table' Jan 2002 Magazine. I've served the heated as well as cold - both are great. Cooking time is refrigertion time
