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!

Loved it! I was able to get some tender "end of the season" asparagus. It wasn't cheap, but very good! I followed your directions exactly except I didn't add lemon juice and I did thicken the soup with a little flour and water. I used 1/4 cup of half/half because I didn't have heavy cream and it turned out great. The flavor was wonderful! I will definitely make this again and again. I served the soup with an antipasto and the Barefoot Contessa's Parmesan Toasts. Thank you so much for submitting this.

This was very light and tasty. I found the flavor not as intense as I expected, but that might of been because of the broth I used. I also ended up adding some cornstarch to thicken it up.

Delicious! I just loved this....wondered about the small amount of asparagus, but it is just perfect. I'll enjoy this recipe whenever I see the thin little asparagus in the stores. Thanks for sharing!

This was scrumptious! It was also easy to make. I used the whipping cream cause it's easier to get in our area. I'll be making this again. Thanks, mersaydees! Made for ZWT5 for the Kitchen Witches.
