Spicy Cream of Asparagus Soup Recipe

You might have heard by now that "souping" is the new juicing. Soup is a satisfying and delicious way to infuse your body with tons of nutrients that are easy to digest – and it's certainly more satisfying than a cold juice. Today's guest post soup recipe is courtesy of Lagostina. Please visit their site to learn more about them and their kitchen and cooking products.

Spicy Cream of Asparagus Soup Recipe

1 bunch of asparagus
½ onion
1 stalk celery
1 carrot
1 potato
6 Ecodosi of water
4 tablespoons of fresh cream
1 hot pepper

1. Peel the potato and carrot. Cut into cubes. Cut the celery and onion into slices. Prep the asparagus by cutting and removing the white part of the stems.

2. Put all the vegetables into the pot, add the water and crushed red pepper. Close the lid and cook for 15 minutes.

3. Let the steam vent gradually, then open the lid. Take out 10-12 asparagus tips and put them aside. Blend the rest with a hand blender.

4. Add the asparagus tips kept aside, pour the cream, adjust salt if necessary and do reduce the cream for 5 minutes on medium heat. Serve hot.

This sounds like a delicious asparagus soup. I have never made it with a hot pepper. I have never heard the term Ecodosi, so I shall look it up.
