      If you love asparagus this soup is a MUST make! It is very creamy and the asparagus flavor is fantastic. I did need 1 c. more chicken stock as mine cooked WAY done during the asparagus cooking, but other than that it was foolproof and perfect. That you Ginny for the sublime soup!

      Delicious! I went looking for cream of asparagus recipes after a wonderful appetizer soup I had in a restaurant on New Years Eve. This soup is fabulous, but I'm going to take it one step further like the restaurant version that I had, and add a sprinkle of crab meat on top! If u like crab also, try it! It's a winning combo! Thanks GinnyP!

      If I had more stars to give, I would. Unfortunately there are only 5. This was absolutely the best. I used 2 boxes of chicken stock, which is 8 cups, but I put in a bit extra asparagus. I used my immersion blender which works out so quick. It turned out fantastic, I had raving reviews over it. I was told not to ever lose this recipe. It was so creamy and flavorful. I found it so easy and quick to make. I thought it would be missing something because there is only salt and pepper in it, but what a mistake that thought was. It was perfect, restaurant quality in fact. Thank you so much for posting this recipe Ginny
