This was very easy to make and tasty too. If you are looking for a good use of fresh asparagus for a light meal this recipe would be perfect. If I was looking for a heartier meal, then I would add less liquid and make it a bit thicker.
I made this for a co-worker whose husband just returned from the hospital after suffering a heart attack. I eliminated butter and salt from this recipe by using olive oil and homeade chicken broth. The patient loved it and it was hard for him to believe it was so low in sodium.
I love this soup - it is one of the few recipes that is not a cream based. I find that the asparagus only needs to cook for 12 minutes and I add lots of lemon pepper when cooking the asparagus for a zester flavor. It is also good served cold.
