    1. 1
      Start milk and chicken broth boiling along with a pinch of salt.
    2. 2
      While waiting to heat up, remove the woody ends of the asparagus and chop into 1" pieces, then add to liquid mixture.
    3. 3
      Allow to simmer for 15 - 20 minutes.
    4. 4
      While that is simmering, coarsely chop onion and leek.
    5. 5
      Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat.
    6. 6
      Add leeks, onions, garlic, and a couple good pinches of salt (maybe 1/2 tsp.) and cover, stirring every couple of minutes.
    7. 7
      Continue sweating onions and leeks until they are nice and tender.
    8. 8
      When asparagus is tender, add marjoram and use a stick blender or a food processor to puree the mixture.
    9. 9
      In a large sauce pan, melt butter over medium high heat, then add flour, stirring constantly until the mixture is blended and foamy, about 1 minute. This makes a roux.
    10. 10
      Mix the asparagus puree mixture into the roux and allow to come to a simmer but do not let it boil.
    11. 11
      Grind the mustard and grains of paradise and stir into the soup.
    12. 12
      Stir in onions and leeks.
    13. 13
      Shred chicken breasts and add to the soup.
    14. 14
      Allow to simmer a couple more minutes.
    15. 15
      Serve topped with parmesan cheese.
