Asparagus Soup

Asparagus in not native to India. I find it in the market often, but priced really high. But I have come to like the taste of asparagus. I therefore buy it every once in a while. It normally goes into a salad with baby carrots. But this time, I was having a rollicking good time experimenting with soups. And therefore decided to try out an asparagus soup – now, I am left with a bunch of baby carrots and wondering what to do with them. Nevertheless, the soup was really worth it. And therefore more reason than ever to buy this expensive vegetable even more often. I must thank feel good foodie for pointing me the way to this wonderful soup.
