Recipe by Miss Diane
"This is an easy, delicious recipe I got from a local restaurant. I make this every spring when asparagus is abundant here. I think because of the sherry this soup has a wonderful nutty flavor. This can easily be made as a low-calorie soup by using 1 tablespoon olive oil instead of the butter, and by omitting the heavy cream. Just add a little cornstarch to thicken, if needed."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

fresh asparagus, trimmed
red onion, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Delicious and very simple. Only difference, I used dry white wine instead of the sherry and a stick blender. Great easy recipe. Thanks!
This recipe was okay. It was very thin not at all a cream soup. I choose not to add the heavy cream it simply didn't need the liquid and I didn't need the fat and calories. Instead I added a little corn starch after the blender step and put it in the crock pot for about 4 hours. The taste is bland and needs salt and pepper for sure.
do we use the asparagus that was set aside or save it for another purpose? If so, when do we add it?
I make this same soup but for those who prefer a chunkier soup delete using the blender portion. It is terrific both ways and my hubby loves this recipe. If I could give this a 10 star I would.
Thank you for a nice easy recipe. In an attempt to reduce the salt and the fat, I made some changes. I used unsalted butter, low salt chicken stock, and low fat buttermilk instead of cream. I will make this again.
this is a great and easy recipe, the kids liked it as well. I added some mushrooms to the list of ingredients. thanks!
GREAT! my hubby and son loved it!
This is a little thin for us as written. But really nice flavor. I used white onion instead of red and next time I would add about 2 Tablespoons of flour to the butter / onion - make a roux by cooking the flour in the butter and then adding the liquid. I used a stick blender in the pot and reserved some of the thin asparagus tips as a garnish along with a little additional cream. It makes for a beautiful presentation.
