The trick in making the perfect Cream of Asparagus Soup is in the blender that you will use. You see, we need to blend the ingredients while we are cooking to achieve a smooth and thick texture. I always use an Immersion Blender for this job, and it never fails me. I also use the same blender to prepare smoothies and shake because it is convenient and easy to wash, compared to traditional blenders.
This Cream of Asparagus Soup is perfect for a light lunch or an appetizer for any kind of main dish. I love to have it with a few crackers on the side.
