Jamie Oliver's Creamy Asparagus soup

Introduction

With this recipe, it has a poached egg and ciabatta bread for a topping but it can be omitted. It isn't included in this recipe. I also omitted the sea salt as my husband has high blood pressure.

Ingredients

    asparagus, olive oil, white onions, leeks, celery, chicken stock, black pepper.

Directions

Chop the tips off of the asparagus and set aside. Roughly cut up asparagus stalks. Get a large soup pot and add olive oil. Gently fry the onions, celery and leeks for around 10 minutes, until soft, without browning. Add chopped asparagus stalks and stock and simmer for 20 minutes with lid on. Remove from heat and puree with hand blender or regular blender. Season with pepper to taste. Put the soup back on the heat, stir in tips. Bring back to boil and simmer for a few more minutes until tips soft.
Optional:
Just before serving the soup, you can poach an egg or 2 for each serving and toast 8 slices of ciabatta bread. Place a piece of toast and an egg on each serving. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.
Makes 8 servings.
Can be frozen.

  • I add portabello mushrooms to the gentle fry. This makes the soup taste great. - 4/28/13

  • I found this unexpectedly bland despite the leeks and onions. Perhaps it's my fault for forgetting the celery or using no-sodium turkey broth or old thyme because snow's covering my thyme plants. I fixed it by adding veggie bouillion (salty). - 2/11/10
