An adequate, basic recipe to use more as a guide or reference tool. I didn't care for the margarine called for so I used butter. And, because I wanted a *creamier* Cream of Asparagus Soup, I used equal measurements of chicken broth and half and half. I don't know creamy this would be if prepared with so little half and half! I didn't feel all that flour was necessary so I reduced it by nearly half, but because I used a higher proportion of half and half than the recipe directs, I probably didn't need any at all. I sauteed some minced shallot and garlic before adding the asparagus, then seasoned it lightly with Herbes de Provence to give it another dimension of flavor. Finally, I pureed the soup, which is different than the recipe directs. The final result was a 5-star soup.
