    KellyMac6's Note:

    I found this recipe in my Immersion Blender manual. It is a great first course. Listed to serve ten if only half cup servings are used, as would be for a first course. If using as a main course adjust servings appropriately.

      We loved this soup and so did our kids. Recipe was easy to follow. We did not have shallots so used some onion instead.

      The soup was a bit too thick so I had to add more cream (half and half). The taste is amazing. And it's so creamy. My first time doing asparagus soup that tastes like in restaurants :) I did half of it cause I only had 1 lb asparagus. I used dry white wine. Thanks Kellymac :) Made for PRMR tag game
