Spring Asparagus Soup

This creamy asparagus soup is made without heavy cream – just vegetables, broth, and puréed to silky perfection.  It’s perfect for early spring when asparagus is in peak season. Did you know that when asparagus are harvested they are cut one spear at a time? A special thanks to our farmers for their hard work.
