Asparagus Soup


Grilled Asparagus Soup served cold with chopped almonds and extra virgin olive oil.

I grilled asparagus then pureed it with my recently-made chicken stock, lemon juice and some garlic scapes (just cause I had them on hand).

I let the mixture cool then topped with chopped almonds and a drizzle of evoo.

The soup was kinda powerful. Next time I'll add a touch of honey for some sweetness and maybe a touch of cream, just for a little enrichment. The almonds were great in the soup.

I made asparagus soup the other day and it was also mighty powerful -- maybe too much lemon juice but it also had a dash of sweet vermouth, so who knows. Next I will add some cream, then on top some parmesan cheese and a dash of olive oil. Might help.

If you were 5 years older, I'd ask you to marry me. Just kidding..but seriously.
I'm curious what your stance is on organic foods, and have you ever considered creating any vegetarian dishes?
