Ingredients list

  • 400 g white asparagus
  • 1,5 l water
  • 3 tsp vegetable broth
  • 100 ml milk
  • 100 ml liquid cream
  • 50 g butter
  • 50 g wheat flour
  • 35 g parmesan cheese grated
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • chives to taste

Directions

  • Wash the asparagus thoroughly, peel and remove the lower woody part. Cut off the tips of the asparagus and set aside. Cut the rest into small pieces of about 1cm(½in).
  • Put the water in a saucepan and boil the asparagus peels in it for 10 minutes. Then drain the peels, collecting the fond in the process.
  • Return the fond to the pot, add asparagus pieces and vegetable broth and simmer on medium heat for 10 minutes. Then puree very finely with a hand blender. Continue to cook on low heat.
  • Melt the butter in a pan, add the flour and whisk thoroughly. Then add two ladles of the soup and the milk and whisk until lump-free. Add the contents of the pan, as well as the asparagus tips to the soup in the pot and simmer for another 5 minutes.
  • Now add the liquid cream and grated Parmesan, season with salt and pepper and mix well.
  • Finally, pour the soup into deep plates or bowls, garnish with chopped chives and serve hot.
    Buon appetito!
