For all of the asparagus lovers out there this one is for you. After making the asparagus and pesto dip, I wanted to try and make an asparagus soup and now was the perfect opportunity. It was surprisingly easy to make and was very quick just like other cream soups.
I like asparagus for its nutty flavour and the fact it has a bite to it. Adding potatoes and spinach to the soup compliments the flavour of the asparagus and adds different textures to the soup.
