Ingredients

6 green (spring) onions
1 pound (450 grams) asparagus
2 tablespoons olive oil
17 fl. ounces (500 ml) of vegetable stock (stock cube is fine)
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional: 4 tablespoons of heavy/double cream
Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Wash and chop the six green (spring) onions. Then wash and chop 1 pound of asparagus. Heat olive oil in a pot and then add onions. Lightly cook onions until softened. 

Add asparagus and cook for three minutes. 

Add the vegetable stock. (Don’t worry, a stock cube is fine.)

Simmer gently until the asparagus is soft (about 10 minutes). Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Now, blend the entire mixture until smooth. (You can use a food blender.)

Stir in the heavy/double cream until blended. (For a lighter and more elegant touch, use creme fraiche.)

If needed, reheat soup.

Makes a great soup. Only

Makes a great soup. Only difference, I added 2 tablespoons of chopped onion and 4mushrooms to the butter before adding flour. Great with the added flavor.
