This yummy recipe came from my love of asparagus (especially when they're cheap and in season in early spring!), and some potatoes reaching their last mile. Asparagus is really cheap in SoCal starting in March, so this whole dish probably cost less than $10 to make. Add a sandwich and/or salad and it's a great health dinner. This is the best soup I've made... maybe had... so far. It's much easier with a stick blender, but any blender will do.
