Spargelsuppe - White Asparagus Soup

 

Makes 6 servings

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c. chopped onion (1 small)
  • 2 T. butter
  • 1 1/2 -2 lb. white asparagus, peeled and cut into 2 inch pieces, heads reserved
  • 6 c. broth, either chicken or vegetable
  • 1/2 c. half and half cream
  • Salt, to taste
  • Fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • Dry white wine, to taste
  • Parsley for garnish

Preparation:

Make sure you peel white asparagus before you chop it into small pieces. Here is a method for prepping white asparagus.

Sauté the onion in the butter until soft in the bottom of a 4 quart saucepan. Add the pieces of asparagus (minus the heads) and steam for 5 minutes. Add the broth and boil gently for about 30 minutes, or until the asparagus is very soft.

Purée the soup in batches in the blender (place a towel over the lid and hold down the lid so the hot soup does not splatter) or with a hand blender and return to pan.

Bring to a simmer and add the reserved asparagus heads. Cook at least 5 minutes, or until they are fork-tender. Turn down the heat and add the cream. Do not boil further.

Taste and add salt and freshly ground pepper as needed. You may also want to add a few spoonfuls of white wine, if you think the soup needs acidity. Garnish with parsley.
