preparation

1.  In a pot, combine the potato, leeks, and milk and bring to a gentle simmer. Meanwhile, cut off the tips of the asparagus and reserve. Cut 1 inch off the bottom of each asparagus stalk and discard. Cut the stalks into 1-inch sections and add them to the simmering soup. Simmer for about 25 minutes, or until the potatoes, leeks, and asparagus are completely soft.

2.  Puree the soup with a blender and then strain it into a clean pot. Add the cream and the asparagus tips, bring to a simmer, and simmer for about 4 minutes, or until the tips are just tender. Season with salt and pepper.
