    papergoddess's Note:

    I found this on the 'net... posted in reply to a request. Jan's Cream of Asparagus Soup for the Crock pot This is not a low-fat recipe, but hey, asparagus is a good excuse to splurge. Note: This is for a 5-quart crock pot, which is larger than the usual. Cut down the proportions if you have a smaller crock pot.

      Too many ingredients - we couldn't taste the asparagus at all and I added 2 cans of asparagus to the recipe. I omitted one onion and used only 2 very small potatoes and 6 teaspoons of bouillon, no tarragon and no basil. The soup was okay but was not cream of asparagus.

      Delish!! I left out the tarragon and it could have been thickened just a little. But it really tastes like restaurant quality soup!!! And it was SUPER easy. I even used an immersion blender to puree and was done in about 30-45 seconds with that step.
