I pull this recipe out every Spring when my favorite asparagus vendors show up at the farmers market. What a wonderful way to use the entire spear and yet showcase the tips at the same time. This soup is delicious hot or at room temperature and it is a very elegant lunch or first course dinner option. The creme fraiche is a delightful addition, but that and the cream can be eliminated for a dairy free version of the recipe.
As the weather warms up, we tend to forget about soups. For all of the hearty soups and stews we enjoy throughout the Winter, it’s nice to have a couple of Sping options that are seasonal ingredient driven. I’ll be posting more as we get closer to Summer!
