3. Decorating Tips for Asparagus Soup with Coconut Milk

The soup is excellent with:

–> Chili,

–> Goji berries,

–> Sesame and sesame furikake,

–> Peanuts,

–> Cashew kernels.

If you like cilantro you can pluck off beautiful cilantro leaves and put them in the soup.

Another variation is thin, elongated asparagus slices.

To do this, sacrifice an asparagus spear and cut very thin, oblong slices with a peeler.

You can crimp these raw and put them in the soup.

I would add thin strips of asparagus to the soup today as decoration. This is an interesting ingredient play!
