Rated 5 out of 5 by Rockbridge from Asparagus ends soup !!!!! I made this with the woody ends that I always throw in the trash ! I steamed the ends in the microwave for 3 minutes . Heated one cup of water in microwave with the hot water setting . I put the asparagus ends in the vitamix. I added 2 tablespoons of kitchen accomplice chicken broth and stirred it till mixed . Poured it into the vitamix. I got a med russet potato and microwaved it for 4 minutes . I quartered it up and put it in the vitamix . Put the lid on , turn it on low and ramp up to full speed. Blend until steam pours out of lid . ( around 4 minutes ) served with wheat saltines. Salt and pepper to taste . I will never throw the asparagus ends away again !!! SO GOOD !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Reenabelle from DELISH! This is the second soup I have made with my new Vitamix Blender. Based on other reviews stating the soup lacked flavor, I decided to tweek it a little. I sauteed the asparagus in some olive oil with 4 small chopped cloves of garlic and a small chopped onion. I also added 2 stalks of celery cut into thirds. While sauteeing, I added 1 tsp of salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Once tender, but not overly soft, I added the asparagus to the Vitamix with the chicken broth and a 1/4 cup of grated pecorino romano cheese. I blended on 10 for the 6 minutes. Then I added 1/2 and 1/2 rather than heavy cream. I baked 2 russett potatoes and cubed them into the bowl before pouring the soup into the bowl. This gave the soup a little texture. It was delicious and full of flavor!!! Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CaptCupcake from So easy and so much flavor! This is a great quick dinner recipe. We made two batches of this soup in under 10 minutes. It's so fresh tasting! We only had lactose-free 2% milk on hand, so I added a wee bit of coconut butter for some richness. It's so good!! I think you have to like how asparagus tastes without a ton of salt and other things, or you might find it bland like the other reviewer. But, if you're into simple, healthy food, this recipe is awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ginette from Great flavour! I steamed the asparagus in a little chicken broth and threw everything in the blender and added the cream at the end as the recipe indicated. We loved it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LW Ottawa from Really good fast and easy This was really good even though I made a few modifications based on what was in the kitchen. I had a bunch of leftover asparagus stems to use up after using the other half for dinner. I also had beef broth in the house rather than chicken broth. I added a litttle green onion and 2 cloves of garlic. Delicious.
