Three Onion-Asparagus Soup

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Irmgard

This lovely soup gets its name due to the fact that it contains three members of the onion family: leeks, scallions (green onions) and chives, which are used to garnish the finished product. From Vegetarian Times.

I had so much asparagus at home I thought I'd try this, and as glad as I am that I did try it, I'm not sure I'd make it again. For a Vegetarian low fat asparagus soup it's great, if however you prefer a richer tasting soup, I'd stick to the cream. Thanks for the variety.
