Yummoh!!! I was looking thru so many asparagus soup recipes..was looking specifically for something not too fattening and with not too many ingredients. I had asparagus on hand and not much else. This one fit the bill and boy it's a winner. Very good soup, nice flavor, few ingredients and simple to make. I didn't have mace on hand, so I used a little cumin. Liked the flavor and added some more to taste. Thanks for a great recipe!
