    This is really a great asparagus soup; I followed everything except the thyme; we don't care for it; but that parmesan at the end bring it up a few notches; thanks or posting.

    What a delicious soup. I used less thyme as I wasn't sure I'd like it, but it was a fine addition. Good without the cheese, but excellent with it!

    So quick and so simple. I did also boil a little longer than stated, but the end result was fantastic. This is a great tasting soup and I just loved it.

    Very nice and simple recipe. I had to add almost a full cup extra of broth, the soup was just to thick! I would also add less thyme and a bit of salt next time. I used non-fat half and half. Thanks beckas!

    Yummy. Having it hot now. Can't wait to try it cold. I didn't add the parmesan cheese.

    We really enjoyed this soup. I used evaporated milk instead of half-and-half, reduced the chicken broth by a cup and increased the milk by a cup so I didn't have to deal with half a can of each left over. I also simmered the asparagus longer than five minutes because I was involved in other dinner preparations.


I love Recipezaar! I have found many great recipes on this site! Since I've found zaar, I've been spending more time making recipes from zaar than I have from my dozens of cookbooks. What can I say....zaar members post darn good recipes! I wish that I could spend more time cooking but I tend to keep meals simple because I work full time as an Microsoft Exchange E-mail Administrator and I spend the rest of my time taking care of my three year old toddler. He demands so much of my time that I don't have as much time to cook as I used to. My favorite hobbies are collecting recipes and photography. I am an amateur photographer and I take pictures at almost every chance that I get. The picture that is posted on this page is a self portrait.
