Green Asparagus Soup

In this article, I present my recipe for green asparagus soup. This soup is a special treat and is very easy to make.

Green vegetables must not be cooked for too long, otherwise the colour is gone, so today there is a quick number in every respect. The flavour explosion comes from a special trinity! A large amount of asparagus. This is joined by the combo of caramelised asparagus pieces and raw, fine asparagus strips as a garnish. Finally, the soup is foamed and served with ice-cold brown butter and sesame yuzu.

The step-by-step photos will guide you to soup happiness. Feel free to write me feedback, a cooking question or 🙂 Kitchen gossip!

1. Shopping list for Green Asparagus Soup

Here is the handy list for your shopping.

  • Asparagus green –> Get 2 bunches for 2 people for intense flavour.
  • Butter –> From the usual section in the supermarket
  • Vegetable stock –> Cooked yourself or organic stock from a jar
  • White wine –> Dry white wine or Prosecco
  • Salt, pepper, sugar, nutmeg, cayenne pepper –> I have in the spice rack
  • Tomatoes –> For a refreshing decoration
  • Sesame –> The spice used is available exclusively in the Sesame Cooking Box.

For this soup, you will need three pots, a fine hair sieve and a hand blender. For carving the asparagus, I recommend a sharp pendulum peeler.

The pendulum peeler is a trendy kitchen accessory in the asparagus season
