    You can substitute other kinds of vegetables:broccoli, carrots, mushrooms. I tend to use whatever I have the most of. It helps me keep my refrigerator under control.

      This is a great soup! I did omit the cheese and added an extra cup of broth to thin it out however. I will definitely be making again. Thanks!

      This soup has a good taste, but the thyme, and parmesan cheese over power the asparagus.

      This was wonderful soup. I cut the thyme back to 1/2 tsp. and I used 4 c. chicken stock, because I had to use it up. Everything else I kept the same and it produced a velvety textured soup with layers of flavor. The delicate asparagus taste came through, perfectly accented by the other ingredients and Parmesan cheese. Two non-asparagus eaters enjoyed this soup a lot!
