Asparagus Cream Soup Recipe from the cook professional, the creamy asparagus soup we cook today with step by step instructions and many photos. 

I have added North Sea crabs to the soup, these special shrimps have an excellent taste and harmonize wonderfully with the creamy soup.  

For your information:

The German asparagus season starts in the middle of April and ends traditionally on June 24th.

The asparagus cream soup is, as the name suggests, a creamy soup with a strong binding.

The soup sticks better to the palate and many people like the creamy taste experience.

I wish you good luck! Enjoy the delicious asparagus soup!

Prepare asparagus stock

Prepare the asparagus stock in a large pot:

Place the asparagus peels and asparagus remains in the pot.

I also add small pieces of asparagus without asparagus tips, so that a powerful asparagus broth develops.

Then add cold vegetable stock, white wine, a slice of lemon, salt, pepper and some sugar and bring the asparagus stock to the boil.

Remove the lemon slice.

Let the broth steep for 15-20 minutes.

Optionally you can also cook potato slices, I like to use them to bind the soup.

Prepare soup garnish

Cut the tips of the asparagus and the remaining asparagus into bite-sized pieces and provide them as an extra insert.

I have also included herbal sideburns in the filling, halve the pizzles or cut them into small pieces.

Strain the asparagus soup through a sieve.

Remove the potato slices from the asparagus stock and prepare them separately.

Finish the asparagus soup with the cream and mix.

Finish soup

Bring the asparagus stock to the boil and pour the cream into the boiling asparagus stock.

Season the soup with salt, pepper, sugar, nutmeg and cayenne pepper.

You can now bind the soup by adding the cooked potato slices and cold mixed starch.

Stir the starch into approx. 80 ml cold water.

Mix the asparagus soup with the potato slices and check the binding of the soup.

Now bind with the cornflour as required:

Slowly add the water with the starch to the boiling soup until the desired binding of the soup is reached.

Cook the soup for 2 minutes so that the starch taste evaporates.

Mix the asparagus cream soup with the cold butter until foamy.

Serve asparagus soup with shrimps.
Serve asparagus cream soup with crabs.


Briefly toss the crabs in the hot nut butter and season with pepper.

Arrange the prepared asparagus pieces in the middle of the soup plates.

Add the frothed soup.

Sprinkle the soup with prawns and parsley and serve quickly.

Enjoy your meal!

3. North Sea Shrimps as Ingredient for Asparagus Cream Soup

North Sea crabs as an ingredient for cream of asparagus soupIn all honesty, the crabs from the North Sea taste best cold.

Be careful when heating them, strong heat does not agree with the delicate sea creatures.

Therefore, please gently warm just before serving in the soup – or just pour nut butter over them.

This soup with crabs tastes excellent. Heat the crabs only slightly, never boil! Then the crabs are fantastically delicious!
