    What is meant by chicken stock cubes? I have home made chicken stock in the freezer, am I supposed to cut it into cubes?

    We had such a big dinner last night that I haven't really been hungry all day today, so have snacked a little here and there. Tonight I felt I needed a good meal, but wanted something light. DH raided the fridge early on and snitched a wedge of last night's left-over Great Round Reuben and didn't want anything else. I cut this recipe in half thinking it would be way too much for us. Boy, I wish I would have made the whole thing now. I had a bowl along with some of Inez's [recipe=31382]Poppy Seed Muffins[/recipe]. They were both delicious and went beautifully together! There is just enough soup left-over that I will be reheating it for a side dish for tomorrow's dinner. Thank you for sharing a really terrific and easy recipe Eve!

    Yummy soup. I added a sprinkle of onion flakes, some nutmeg and a little thyme just to jazz it up. I think I may try a little sprinkle of cheddar cheese on top of each serving next time, I think that could be a nice addition and who doesn't love cheese!

    Simple and delicious! I love that there weren't too many flavors competing and the asparagus really was the star. And, to make things better it was quick and easy to make. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Cooked this creamy soup on a busy wednesday night whilst also putting kids to sleep. So easy. Wife went for three portions...

    A nice soup but not as tasty as I expected based on the reviews. I dont know if it was the recipe or if my asparagus was a little old? My family did eat it though - and the next day it almost turned into a science project as they rushed to the internet to explore a curious after effect of eating aspargus! Some of you will know what I am referring to!

    Easy. Fast. Delicious. Subbed olive oil for butter. I did not have any chicken bullion cubes so I used porcini muchsroom cubes ( I don't know if these are available in the states- they are a Kn**r brand from Italy).

    Yummmm ... replaced some of the milk with chicken broth and added 1 tsp salt!

    Wow! This soup was delish, and very easy. Had some neglected asparagus that I might have tossed out, but made this soup instead. Cut the recipe in half, but still used two chicken bouillion cubes. Even with my asparagus being reduced to "no tops, no tails," the soup had tons of flavor and was a big hit with my husband. Thanks for posting a superb recipe, Evie! A keeper.
