  • Puree the soup with an immersion blender, or in a food processor.
  • If using a food processor, transfer the soup back to the saucepan.
  • Heat the soup to warm it through.

    Very tasty soup - I used Basil instead of mint. I used asparagus stalkes ( bottom part that I had in the freezer) - Not the whole bottom part but about 2" below where the asparagus snaps.

    This was quite a nice simple soup. I had three lbs of asparagus from thanksgiving that I completely forgot to cook- this used up half. Plus I had mint leaves left from another recipe, so it was just perfect. I added about 1/2 c. white wine and used a splash of lemon juice instead of zest. Didn't have the chives and scallion tops, but we didn't miss them. DH and I both had generous helpings for dinner, and I was able to tuck three servings in the freezer for lunches. Thanks for helping me use up my asparagus!
