NOTE: Today we can buy asparagus many months throughout the year. However, when asparagus season is upon us – May through June on the East Coast, the flavor is more sublime and at its best. As the asparagus ages, it loses its sugar and develops a stronger, more pronounced “asparagus” flavor.

Homemade Cream of Asparagus Soup

Ingredients:

  • 2 bunches large asparagus
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 16 oz. vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Chop asparagus and steam until tender.
  2. In a large stock pot over medium heat, sauté onions in olive oil until soft and translucent.
  3. Add asparagus pieces and salt and pepper. Sauté all together for about 7-8 minutes.
  4. Stir in the vegetable broth and cook for another 10 minutes.
  5. Next we’ll blend together all of the ingredients. You can use an immersion blender right in the pot, or very CAREFULLY transfer the contents of the pot to your blender – do this in batches filling the blender about 2/3 full. Puree until it reaches the preferred consistency. If you like it somewhat chunky you will blend less, if you like a silky smooth consistency, blend longer.
  6. Blend in the heavy cream and serve immediately
