Easy and quick with the help of a food processor. This couldn't be easier and a great soup to make in a hurry. Serve as a starter for dinner or a main course with a side salad or sandwich. I make this often when my grocery store puts asparagus on sale or when they have it at the Farmers Market. It is easy on the budget and just comforting. You can top with some diced sauteed bacon, a toasted baguette or even some grated Monterey Jack cheese, which is creamy when it melts.
