Cream of Asparagus Soup
Since it's in Season and just about done why not.
So it rained at work today and home base so felt like comfort food.
I started a Pot Roast for tomorrow since it takes a while.
Made Taco Meat for the middle of the week.
I wanted soup and why not I made Cream of Asparagus Soup
voile' here it is Bon Appetit!!!
I grilled the Asparagus with Olive Oil and Seasoning until they are charred on each side.
In a pot 1 saute'd 1/2 sweet onion and garlic,
Added 3 cups Chicken Stock
1 Squirt of Anchovy Paste
Salt, Pepper, White Pepper and Old Bay Seasoning to Taste, Healthy amount of Thyme
1 Tablespoon Butter
I chopped the Asparagus and then puree'd those guys
Add to stock
I add 1 heaping Tablespoon of Cream Cheese I thought I had Cream Fraiche but none.
Then I used an immersion blender
Simmer for 5 minutes
I added 1/2 cup of Heavy Cream
Let thicken and ready to serve
Yummy with Croutons, I baked those while the Soup was on.
