Asparagus Soup - A delicious soup prepared with asparagus, onion, water and finished it with milk or cream for creaminess.

When I first saw these stem like vegetable in one of the supermarket here in USA, I don't even know what that was. Then I happened to know about this while watching a cooking show in TV and learned the cooking techniques. I always want to try a new dishes. So I gave it a try. First I tried a simple pan fried asparagus and then the soup. Both of the dishes came out very well. Me and my husband loved it. Now we are buying asparagus regularly whenever it is available.

Asparagus soup is one of the delicious and creamiest soup. Here, I am adding milk to make it rich and creamy. While cleaning asparagus, first wash well, then trim the asparagus end and discard it. Because the end part of asparagus would be hard. Follow this step for any dish you prepare it with asparagus. Now we have our asparagus ready. Let's make asparagus soup.

1Trim the end of asparagus up to 1 inch and discard them. This part of asparagus is very tough and has a woody texture. Then cut the tip of the asparagus up to 1/2 inch for garnishing. Chop the remaining asparagus into small pieces and chop the onion as well.

3This soup is supposed to be little thick. So add water just enough to cover the asparagus. Cook it for 5 min. By this time asparagus tips will be cooked soft. So remove only the tips from pan and keep aside for garnishing. Cook the remaining asparagus for another 5-10 min till asparagus becomes soft.

4After it is cooked, cool down a little bit. When it is still warm, blend it smooth in a mixer/blender with water(used for cook asparagus). Then pour the soup back to the pan and heat it. Add required salt, then pour in the milk. You don't have to cook this longer, just heat it well for good 2-3 min. Finally add the pepper powder. Taste the soup and check the seasoning. If it needs more salt and pepper, add it. Ladle the soup to serving bowl and top it off with reserved asparagus tips and fresh cream(optional).

NOTES

If you don't want to garnish the soup with asparagus tips, chop them also into small and boil with other pieces.

Trimming the edge is important. Do not skip that step.

If you want more creaminess, replace milk with heavy cream.
