Cream of Asparagus Soup

This has fast become one of my all-time favourite soup recipes. It’s super-easy to make and tastes amazing! I like to have mine with an olive roll (sadly not homemade – thanks Tesco!) which has been slightly warmed and smothered in butter! Bliss on a chilly day!!

Cream of Asparagus Soup

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 400g asparagus
  • 1 onion
  • 500ml chicken stock
  • 200ml milk
  • 200ml double cream

Method:

  1. Chop the onion. It doesn’t have to be too fine because the soup gets blended at the end.
  2. Fry the onions over a medium heat until they are soft.
  3. Chop the asparagus and add it to the pan.
  4. Fry for 2-3 minutes until it starts to soften.
  5. Add the chicken stock and bring it to the boil
  6. Season with salt and pepper and then simmer for ten minutes.
  7. Stir in the milk and cream then use a hand blender to make the soup smooth.

I told you this recipe was easy – it takes under 20 minutes. Even Mr B who doesn’t like asparagus liked this lovely creamy soup – that’s high praise indeed!
