White asparagus soup

White asparagus soup

While leaving in Germany I tested many recipes for asparagus soup and this is THE best. Simply. I have cooked it for my daughter’s  christening party and it was a great success among my German guests. I didn’t need better recommendation. Germans are very proud of their Spargel ( Asparagus in German) and so do I of my soup.

Enjoy!
