Asparagus Soup

This cream of asparagus soup is wonderfully light and comforting at the same time. Garnish the soup with shaved Ontario asparagus, chives, croutons or a dollop of sour cream. If you don’t have an immersion blender, use a counter-top blender and purée the soup in batches. The soup can be made up to 3 days in advance and gently warmed before serving.
