Tips

  • When choosing the Asparagus for your soup, always try to use the thicker ones, as they will enhance the aroma and flavor of the soup.
  • Store the Asparagus tips for garnish; these greens will give the soup a spring touch.
  • If you wish to ditch the cornflour, then you can use whisked egg and wax beans.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a pan add some butter and chopped garlic. When the garlic turns brown and becomes fragrant, then add the chopped Asparagus and saute them for a few minutes.
  2. Add chopped shallots or the small onions, and let them cook for another five minutes. Then add thin slices of cayenne pepper for a stingy and spicy taste.
  3. When the shallots seem soft and cooked, add the vegetable stock, a pinch of salt, and crush some black pepper to add the spicy flavor. And bring them to a boil.
  4. After boiling for a good 10-12 minutes, now put the flame on low. Take a small bowl and add two tbsp of cornflour and add two spoons of cold water, and make a thick paste.
  5. Add the cornflour paste to the boiling soup. This will add thickness and creaminess to your soup.
  6. Keep it stirring for a few minutes, and put off the flame once you get the right thickness. Now your soup is ready to serve.
  7. Garnish your soup with a drizzle of fresh milk cream, some parsley or basil leaves, and some chopped chives.

But if you are making it ahead and planning to freeze the soup then do not add milk or cream in it, you can add it when you defrost and serve, and reheat it.

What Are Some Recipe Variations?

  • Asparagus soup with Chicken broth: If you are a non-veg lover, then you can add chicken broth instead of vegetable broth. This will enhance the nutritional values and the thickness.
  • Asparagus soup with a Tang of lemon: To make your soup tangy add 2 tbsp of lemon juice and some lemon rinds. When adding the lemon, you have to ditch the milk cream. To add a kick of citrus flavor, you can add a very little amount of lemon-peel shreds while garnishing.
  • Asparagus soup with Mushroom: This is a combination of mushroom and asparagus soup, as both give a creamy texture. While sauteing the Asparagus, add some button mushrooms, and follow the same recipe.
