    Linorama's Note:

    Spring means fresh asparagus, and what better way to celebrate than with this flavorful, pretty soup? It's creamy without any cream, and incorporates lots of veggies. Using margarine will keep it completely dairy free. It's best fresh, so I normally cut the recipe in half. From The Daily Soup cookbook.

      This soup recipe is fantastic..... hot or cold. Out of mustard seeds, I substituted Ajwain seeds and homemade chicken broth.

      A good soup for the spring, I didn't put thyme and bay leaves because I didn't have any, and substituted the dill (which I don't like) with chives; it was tasty and light, perhaps not too creamy, and a tablespoon low-fat sour cream swirled in the plate added a nice texture and good looks! I'll sure make this again, thanks!
