“Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. This would make a very pretty "spring" soup. From The Swedish Table by Helene Henderson. She recommends peeling the tomatoes but I probably wouldn't bother. I have not tried this recipe yet.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit.
  2. Place tomatoes cut side down in metal broiling pan for 20-25 minutes or until lightly seared and skins begin to curl.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large pot combine olive oil, potatoes and onion. Cook on low to medium heat, stirring often, until onion is translucent and potatoes begin to soften, about 6-8 minutes.
  4. Add asparagus and cook 2-3 minutes more. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  5. Add broth and simmer until potatoes and asparagus are just done, about 3 minutes.
  6. Using an immersion blender or conventional blender, process soup for a few seconds until blended but still chunky. Add lemon juice and additional salt and pepper if needed.
  7. Peel and discard tomato skins (if desired). Transfer tomatoes to a food processor or blender and add chipolte pepper (or hot sauce), Worcestershire sauce, vinegar and sugar. Process until smooth.
  8. Ladle asparagus soup into bowl and garnish with generous tablespoon of tomato mixture.
