I made as directed and felt it had no flavor. I then added saute chopped onion, celery & mushrooms. It was better, but not great. I will keep serching for an Asparagus soup recipe, this is not the one.

My whole family loves this soup. It's great if your on a diet with the low fat and low calore content it's perfect. It tastes rich and smooth.

This soup is delicious and very easy to make! However, next time I would mash the potatoes by hand rather than puree them in the blender. That was the only difficulty I encountered. This is wonderful with homemade crusty french bread!

I thought it was pretty good but the asparagus I bought was out of season. I wanted fresh asparagus instead of canned. To make it taste more like the sweeter more tender asparagus I added a few tablespoons of honey, & it seemed to do it for me. I also tried leaving out the potatoes -- I like a more condensed asparagus flavor. I also added a handful of fresh mint leaves (shredded) with the asparagus in the broth to be cooked & blended. This gave it a very cool, lite flavor. This soup tastes great chilled --especially a day later when made like this.
