This was really tasty. I basically used all the ingredients from this recipe, but altered the prep a bit. For instance, I sauteed the asparagus (not sure exactly how much I had - I started with a huge bunch from Sam's that I had already taken from once), onion and celery in 5.5 TBS of butter. I just think sauteed veggies taste better.
At first, I had set the tips aside as suggested on another recipe for garnish at the end, then just decided to throw them all in. I think next time I'll saute them for a few, then set them aside to top individual bowls.
Anyway, after cooking veggies til tender, I used my stick blender to cream it all. Then I added the flour, milk and cream mixture. As I was pouring it in, I thought I probably didn't need to do this as the blending made it pretty thick on its own, but I was already committed. You could probably skip it without doing any damage. Wound up adding more pepper to my bowl and a couple of splashes of Tabasco, ate it with some fresh, buttered French bread and it was heavenly. Bacon and cheese are always good adds. Wish I had remembered to add a little garlic per other reviews, but it was still pretty darned tasty.
