Recipe by big surprise
"This is the easiest, quickest, most delicious asparagus soup. Just be sure to use a good quality canned asparagus, and you can't go wrong. The milk and butter are optional as the soup is surprisingly rich without them."

Thank you for an easy way to have asparagus soup! I'm the only one who eats it, and the other way isn't worth the trouble for just me. I used only a splash of ck broth, due to comments regarding the thinness, and also stirred in some sour cream to give it extra creaminess. I borrowed a couple other ideas for extra flavor, and added splashes of lemon juice and soy cauce, plus sprinkled in a little dill weed and onion salt. This was an easy fix to a major craving!
I did not care for this at all. The taste of the canned asparagus is still with me, and there was a bunch of stringy, hard pieces. Sorry...but go for the fresh asparagus.
Wow! I wasn't expecting this to be as good as it is. The only thing I added was a thin ring of yellow onion, diced and pureed with asparagus. Very, very good.
Very easy and delicious recipe. I just added 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, 1/4 tsp of onion powder and 1/8 tsp salt. I used 1/2 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of chicken broth and a little olive oil instead of butter. I garnished it with chopped fresh chives on top. You might want to double the recipe. It just yields exactly 4 servings.
I'm giving this a 4* although its very good and I will make again. It was very easy and quick to make. I did change some things--I only used 1 cup chicken broth and I used 1/2 cup evaporated milk. I microwaved 4 freshed chopped asparagus and added --we liked it and I would say it is 2 cereal bowls or 4 small servings.
Oh my! This is delicious! I'm not a big fan of asparagus soup so I got nervous and added a few extras. I skipped the broth and used cream of chicken soup, I used fresh asparagus that I steamed. Added onion powder, dill sead, soy sauce, and lemon juice based on others recommendations. I used the milk but also added some light sour cream and some boiled fingerling potatoes. Skipped the oil/butter all together. It was amazing! Will definitely make again!
I give this 5 stars for simplicity, and 4 stars for taste. I perfer a thicker soup, so next time I do this I will use two cans of asparagus. I used whole milk to give it a creamier texture. So easy!
AWESOME!! So easy and yummy!! My husband loves it and asks for it several times a week. The only thing I do different is add hot peppers with the asparagus in the blender and do not add milk to keep the recipe low carb.
