Pureed Asparagus Soup

The potato makes this soup rich and creamy without the addition of any cream! Yum. I like this soup chilled as much as I like it hot — I think of it as Asparagus Vichyssoise. As a matter of fact, if you have any wild ramps growing in your yard, add them to this! This would serve 4 as a main meal, or 6 as an appetizer.

Servings: 4-6 Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 25 minutes Total Time: 35 minutes

 

Ingredients

6 cups Chicken or Vegetable Stock

1 pound Potato, peeled and chopped

1 stalk Green Garlic, trimmed and chopped

1 pound Asparagus, washed and rough chopped

Salt and Pepper

Instructions

Pour stock into a soup pot, add potatoes and green garlic. Bring to a boil, and skim any foam that rises. Simmer soup for 10 minutes. Stir in the asparagus and simmer 10 minutes longer until the veggies are all soft. Puree the soup in batches until smooth. For an extra silky soup, pass it through a fine mesh strainer. Return soup to pot and simmer to warm through. Season with salt and pepper. If you have a lemon on hand, give a little squeeze of juice at the very end to brighten the flavor a bit. If you have any herbs in your garden, garnish the soup with a snip of chives, or a chop of parsley or dill or thyme.

This was very simple to make and quite tasty. I ended up doubling the recipe and it has kept well for the past couple of days.
