yep, just finished putting it together....I got the idea from a raw carrot asparagus drink recipe I found on the 'net, couldn't find a cooked soup recipe..
Asparagus Carrot Soup
butter and olive oil
5 medium carrots
2 large onions
1 stalk celery
2 pounds trimmed asparagus but save the tips
1 quart poultry stock
2 cups milk
1/2 cup sour cream/yogurt cheese/creme fraiche
Saute first the diced carrots, then add diced onions, then celery and after they have softened, add chopped asparagus. Cook at least 5 minutes. Add the poultry stock and milk, simmer a bit. Puree all in batches in food processor or blender. Add the sour cream to one batch of soup to puree. Return to heat and add asparagus tips.
When I reheat it tonight I will add more seasonings; maybe some cumin, or nutmeg, or Old Bay and more S&P.
Got any other ideas for seasoning?
