1. Asparagus Soup Recipe simple

You can prepare the simplest asparagus soup all year round. A few years ago I was invited to a friend’s house for Christmas and was amazed. The family tradition was to serve an asparagus cream soup on Christmas Eve. This asparagus cream soup was delicious and I’ll get straight to the basic ingredient.

2. Asparagus Soup with Asparagus from the Glass

I ate this soup with asparagus from the glass for the first time in Vienna with a family friend on 24 December. December is really not an asparagus season, so the cooked asparagus has to be added to the soup. I thought the soup was excellent, so here is the recipe:

2.1 Ingredients Asparagus Soup from the Glass

2.2 Preparation Asparagus Soup, Asparagus from the Glass

  1. Carefully remove the asparagus from the glass, the asparagus water will be put into the pot immediately.
  2. Cut off the asparagus tips and save them for decoration.
  3. Cut the asparagus spears into small pieces and put them in the pot, add the white wine and broth and bring to the boil.
  4. Let the asparagus soup simmer for ten minutes, then bring to the boil and slowly add the cream.
  5. Mix the soup with a hand blender and pass through a fine hair sieve.
  6. Season the asparagus soup with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
  7. Mix this simple asparagus soup with cold butter and serve with the slightly warmed asparagus tips in the soup bowl.

3. Asparagus Soup from fresh Asparagus

The asparagus soup made from fresh asparagus is of course the best asparagus soup, so I would like to go into more detail here.

3.1 Asparagus Soup from Asparagus Rests and Peels

Peel and clean a bunch of white asparagus. Bring the peels and cuttings to the boil in vegetable stock with a little milk and lemon juice and leave to stand for 20 minutes. This asparagus broth can be used for the soup or drunk to purify.

3.2 Asparagus Soup Soupbase

I sacrifice the lower 8-9 centimetres of the asparagus spears for a powerful asparagus soup, cut them into small pieces and then sweat them in a little butter with a shallot. I add a little white wine, then I add the asparagus stock from the asparagus leftovers and let the soup steep for about 20 minutes. So the asparagus taste can develop optimally. The cream is then added to the boiling asparagus stock, I mix everything up, let the soup steep for another 10 minutes, then pass the soup off. The asparagus tips are used as an inlay and can be cooked directly in the soup. I taste the soup with some sugar, salt, pepper, nutmeg and cayenne pepper.

4. Asparagus Cream Soup

The asparagus soup is turned into creamy soup or asparagus cream soup by various measures.:

4.1 Asparagus Cream Soup with Cornflour

Bind the asparagus soup with some cornflour – mix a heaped teaspoon of cornflour in cold water (100 ml) and add to the boiling soup (500 ml).

4.2 Asparagus Cream Soup with Potato

Just cook a chopped potato from the beginning and mix it with the soup. The starch of the potato binds the soup and makes the asparagus soup creamy. You can also bind the asparagus soup later with a little finely grated potato. Peel the potato, grate finely, bring the soup to the boil, gradually add the grated potatoes, bring to the boil, add more potatoes until the desired binding is reached.

4.3 Asparagus Cream Soup with Flour

The binding with flour is done right at the beginning of the soup preparation: sauté the shallot and asparagus pieces in butter, sprinkle in some flour. Sweat the flour slightly, but do not brown it. Then deglaze with cold wine or cold liquid so that no lumps form.  Warm roux must always be extinguished cold, if the roux becomes cold it must be extinguished with warm liquid. This prevents lumps from forming.

5. Asparagus Soup from Green Asparagus

I cook my asparagus soup always with white asparagus, green asparagus comes only as a luxury insert in the soup.

6. Asparagus Soup like Alfons Schuhbeck

With the Alfons we have prepared the asparagus course from asparagus remains and peels as well as from asparagus spears. Today I don’t want to talk so much about it, but there is a lot of cream and butter in the asparagus soup. The soup was always strongly mixed with cold butter before serving and then served foamed.

7. Asparagus Soup with Coconut Milk

I also like the exotic version of asparagus soup, where the cream is replaced by coconut milk. The soup can be served with Please try it out for yourself – you don’t need a recipe for that and you can trust yourself to taste it.

8. Asparagus Soup Inlays

The following are suitable for the asparagus soup: semolina dumplings, small bacon dumplings, Schöberl, a pancake roulade with smoked salmon, a glazed meatballs, the asparagus tips,…

9. Decoration and Colour for Asparagus Soup
