Cream of Asparagus and Leek Soup

Cream of Asparagus and Leek Soup created by Maryland Jim

This is my version of a recipe that I saw in the San Diego newspaper, but neglected to bring home with me. Try freezing the puree in smaller batches and adding the divided cream on those days when asparagus is out of season. Yummy!

ingredients

directions

  • Trim green part of leeks and discard. Thoroughly wash white portion and finely chop. (I find it best to completely separate the layers.).
  • In large pot, saute leek, onion, and celery in butter and add white wine to keep vegetables moist. (You can alternately do this with some of the chicken stock.).
  • Add asparagus and 4 cups of the chicken stock. Season with pepper. Simmer for 1/2 hour or until vegetables are tender.
  • Puree the soup in small batches adding the remainder of the stock.
  • In another pot reheat (but not boil) the puree while whisking in the cream (or milk.).
  • Serve immediately.

    This is a very fine soup, Followed directions exactly. I think it needed a little salt. Next time I might add some diced jalapena for a little additional spice.Made for PAC fall 09.
