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
We only get Asparagus Soup when we go to a fancy restaurant so this was a real treat. It had a great smooth texture and had wonderful flavor. Topping each bowl with fresh ground pepper is a must. It was a little time consuming but well worth it. For a dinner party I would make the day before and warm it up the next day. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!
Great flavor. Ditto all of the other reviews. I used vegetable stock and it came out very tasty. For real restaurant presentation, I cut off the florets and saved. Put them in the warm reserve stock while pureeing and the put them on top of the soup as a garnish. I also just put the florets in the soup too. I will definitely make this again and may try it with broccoli. Can't wait to taste it today (day 2).
I thought this recipe was superb, but I thought the flavor was better on the second day. I wondered if a little cheese might add something to the soup, but then I decided after eating it the second day, the soup was excellent just the way it is.
Wow. This is a keeper, for sure. I had no half and half so used canned milk and it is sooo good. Thanks . jeannie from colorado
