Asparagus Soup

There are 2 types of soups that I liked. One is Mushroom Soup and the other is the Asparagus Soup. Most of the time I cooked Mushroom Soup for my family but today I decided to cooked this simple elegant Asparagus soup instead. This soup was pureed till silky smooth and goes well with garlic bread sticks.


100g Unsalted Butter
400g Asparagus, woody ends removed
1 medium onions, peeled and chopped
1 stick celery, trimmed and chopped
1 leek, trimmed and chopped
1 litres chicken stock
Ground Black Pepper
Cooking Cream to taste


Melt butter & oil in a large suacespan over medium heat.
Add onion and saute for about 5 minutes
Add Asparagus, Celery and Leek and saute for about 5 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper.
Add the chicken stock and bring it to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes until asparagus is very tender.
Carefully transfer to a blender and puree until smooth.
Return to saucepand and stir in Cooking Cream and season with salt and pepper to taste.
