      I added parmesan, but still felt like it needed more...something. Nice diet soup for me, though.

      As a asparagus lover, I was eager to try this dish. My own rendition used light butter added to the soup after the mix was pureed - cooking the onions in cooking spray - maximizing the flavor while keeping the calories low. Based on the previous reviewer comments about the fennel, I kept mine in a herb pouch. Loved the combination of fennel and asparagus, something that I had never considered despite my fondness for both. A light and lovely supper which was a wonderful taste of springtime.

      This soup was very good. a lovely green and the texture perfect. All the flavors blended well and came through. The fennel added a nice flavor to the broth, but when you bit into one it came on to strong. I will definitely make the soup again using a tea ball or chachet for the fennel seeds to keep them out of the finished soup.
