“Spring means fresh asparagus, and what better way to celebrate than with this flavorful, pretty soup? It's creamy without any cream, and incorporates lots of veggies. Using margarine will keep it completely dairy free. It's best fresh, so I normally cut the recipe in half. From The Daily Soup cookbook.”
