Wonderful soup so full of flavour and just so comforting for on a cold winters night! So easy with ingredients that were on hand. It does not get any easier than this.....This is a must recipe....... when Asparagus are in seasion! Thanks S.C..... always can count on you for a wonderful recipe! Keeping this one on hand for next winter/spring. so divine on a cold night!
This was pretty good soup, easy to make. I made this to use up some asparagus so I didn't have a full bunch, used bouillon for the broth and, to cut down on calories, I used 2% milk for the cream and didn't use near 2 tblsp of oil. It didn't thicken up much (probably b/c I didn't use the cream) so I added some cornstarch which didn't help much. It was a good recipe, though, something I may make again.
