OH MAN! This is a great soup. Made a little healthier version - used veggie broth, omitted the bacon, and used skim milk. I over-salted the soup and remembered a trick my grandma told me once. ...
This soup is amazing! The only change I made was to add the mushrooms with the asparagus stalks so that I could puree the mushrooms and hide them from my son. He hates mushrooms.
This is a great soup. I fought the inclination to put some garlic in with the cooking onions and the celery, but it didn't need it. The bacon bits I used were from one of those "real bacon bits"...
