  • No need to add the half & half - I cooked the asparagus w/ a chopped potato, sautéed onion & celery & when blended, it's so delicious, I could serve without the half & half. And quick too! - 4/27/14

  • Very good soup!! I used Low Sodium Chicken broth instead of vegetable since it's what I had and sprinkled pepper, lemon juice, chives and sliced garlic on the soup.

  • We live out of the USA right now and my husband has been missing c of a soup! This was a great! I added 3 cloves of garlic and substituted plain yogurt for the cream because cream is not readily available here. Also used fresh AND canned c of a soup since I didn't quite have enough fresh - yummy! - 4/26/10
