Directions

  1. Trim the coarse ends of the asparagus and cut asparagus into one inch pieces. In a medium skillet over medium high heat, saute the asparagus in 1 cup of the broth for about 7 minutes, or until tender.
  2. In a large saucepan over medium high heat, melt the butter or margarine and remove from heat. Add the flour and stir well until smooth. Gradually add the remaining 2 1/2 cups broth. Return the saucepan to the heat and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened.
  3. Add the half-and-half, salt, pepper and cooked asparagus with liquid. Stir well and heat thoroughly. Serve hot and enjoy!

This is the simplest basic recipe for creme of asparagus and it can be made simpler. I omitted the flour and it still came out delish. Instead of onions I added leaks, which for the most part, I did not puree and these gave the soup some body. I used one leek, almost top to bottom. First I sauteed the leeks in the butter, then added the can of broth and half&half. I used only one can (14 oz.) of chicken broth. Then I steamed the asparagus until then were bright green but still crunchy. I pureed the asparaus (left some for garnish) and mixed in with the broth. Three really basic steps. It fed two adults and three children (ages 6,8,3)with about 1/2 serving left over. I used no other flavoring but what the recipe called for (and the leeks) and the taste was wonderful. I did not use pepper (kids might not like it.)

This was SO easy and SO delicious! I took the advice of the previous reviewer and added the Cayenne pepper. I included it with the asparagus and broth in the first seven minutes. For those who don't like a kick to their soup - omit. Otherwise this was great. I was worried that the asparagus would need to be pureed - don't bother. Much more taist whole. Will do this over and over. Really quick and yummy (also - veggie broth is perfect).

This was the first soup I have ever made from scratch & I thought it tasted great and was very easy to make. I used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth though because I'm vegetarian. I would reccomend cutting the asparagus up even smaller than reccomened, maybe 1/2 inch pieces. I also added about 1/4 cup of parmesean cheese. YMMMMM!!!!!
