Roasted Green Asparagus Soup

Green Asparagus Soup

It is Monday and Monday is The Food Matters Project. This time the chosen recipe includes Asparagus. I never thought I would make an asparagus soup. Why? In Germany green asparagus is not very common. We usually celebrate the white one. I ate it but was never a huge fan.

My grandma used to love the white asparagus soup even if it came in a powdered version from Knorr. Shudder. I never liked it.

In Canada I rarely see the white version. Instead the green one is available almost all the time and comparably cheap. I usually roast or fry them and eat them with a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. I have to admit that I have not been very adventurous with the great vegetable so far.

Until now that is. What I did was use the basic recipe from the book and added lemon and a bit of buttermilk and yoghurt. Oh my, is that a tasty soup! I could not stop eating it. Adrienne chose this weeks assignment and chose is wisely. I still have a bunch of asparagus in the fridge and am tempted to just cook it again.

When I was done cooking my soup though I realized something….it is really embarrassing….but I forgot the white beans. Arghgh, how I managed to forget a main ingredient? I swear, I have no idea. It is a sign that I have asparagus left. So now I can truly recreate it. What a pea brain I am.

    Glad you gave asparagus a try in this soup. I have rarely seen white asparagus here in Washington but I’m really looking forward to giving it a try as soon as I find one that is locally produced.

    What a thick soup. If the weather is cool, that must be wonderful. Even if it is warm, it looks delicious. Try it with the white beans. It is good.

    Haha, that’s funny! But that’s great to know that it still tasted great without the beans. These are the great adventures in cooking, right?

    hahaha… you have a baby, that’s an excuse for everything. I bet she was distracting you…😛 It looks delicious though.
    We even grew white asparagus in our garden in Germany… But they certainly don’t sell it here in this part of California either.

    Your picture is perfect for springtime. Don’t feel bad about forgeting the beans. I once made a pumpkin pie without the sugar.
