      Loved it - added about 1/3 tsp thyme when I added the asparagus tops - I'll make it again and again.

      A delicious and easy to prepare soup which I made using my Vegetable Stock. I just had to add some minced garlic and herbs - rosemary, sage and thyme. Otherwise I made this exactly to the recipe, and wouldn't want to change a thing. Loved the lemon juice in this and added more like a tablespoon. But if you're not keen on lemony flavours I'd certainly suggest omitting it. We enjoyed this the night I made it, but as with most soups it tasted so much more flavoursome a couple of nights later so if you can make it ahead, I'd really recommend that! Thanks for sharing yet another super recipe, mersaydees. Made for PRMR.

      This tastes like spingtime in a bowl. Smooth and creamy, I'll be making this whenever asparagus is in season. I used my immersion blender and 1/2 and 1/2. Thanks for being a PAC Host Mersaydees and thanks for this recipe!
