How to make it

Do not burn, or let it go lumpy. Add water, chicken broth, and chicken soup base; stir until smooth. Bring to a boil. Add diced potatoes and chopped asparagus. Reduce heat, and simmer for about 20 minutes.
  • Puree soup in a food processor or blender in batches. Return to pot.
  • Stir in half and half cream, soy sauce, and black and white pepper. Bring soup just to boil. Adjust seasonings to taste.
  • Serve hot.

    I love asparagus. I even munch on the raw stalks and throw the tips into salads sometimes. It is great to see some recipes for one of my fave veggies. Thank you, I cannot wait to try this.
