This soup is a basic leek and potato soup to which cut-up asparagus stalks are added and simmered along with the vegetables. After pureeing this mixture, the asparagus tips are simmered in the soup for a few minutes before serving.

Delicious!!! I used chicken broth as I thought the vegetable may be too bland. I also tossed my asparagus in a zip lock bag, poured some olive oil over it, sprinkled with salt, pepper and garlic and let it maranade a while before grilling. That alone is amazing!
