I downsized this to just one serving for my lunch. I love the addition of lemon with the asparagus. It really brightens the soup.

This was really good. I freaked out a little when I saw how thick the cornstarch made the mixture, but it was fine! I used half milk and half water b/c I ran out of milk! Needs to be pureed. Very yummy and reheats nicely.
