Ingredients

500 g fresh asparagus

1 medium onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 tablespoons butter

3 cups (750 ml) vegetable or chicken broth

1 cup (250 ml) crème fraîche

Salt and ground black pepper, to taste

Optional: a drizzle of lemon juice for a touch of acidity

Preparation

Start by preparing the asparagus. Trim off the tough, fibrous ends of the asparagus, then cut the stalks into 2-3 cm pieces.

In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic. Sauté until translucent and lightly browned.

Add the asparagus pieces to the pan and sauté briefly with the onion and garlic, stirring regularly.

Pour the vegetable or chicken stock into the saucepan. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 15-20 minutes, until the asparagus is tender.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and use an immersion blender to puree the mixture smooth. Alternatively, transfer the contents of the saucepan to a blender and blend until smooth.

Return the soup to the pan, if necessary, and add the crème fraîche. Season to taste with salt and ground black pepper. If you like, add a dash of lemon juice for a touch of acidity.

Heat the soup over low heat for a few minutes, stirring occasionally.

Once the soup is piping hot, serve in individual bowls. Garnish with steamed or blanched asparagus tips for an elegant presentation.

Enjoy your asparagus soup hot, accompanied by croutons or fresh bread.

In conclusion,

Fresh Asparagus Soup is much more than just a soup: it's a celebration of seasonality and culinary simplicity. With each spoonful of this velouté, you'll discover the freshness of the asparagus, the richness of the cream and the subtlety of the herbs, all combined to offer an exceptional taste experience.
