Green Asparagus Soup
from Thomas Sixt
Hi, I am a German Chef and Food Photographer. The imparting of cooking knowledge is my great passion. Everyone can cook for himself and with this website I would like to contribute to its success. Cooking questions I answer you gladly at the end of the articles. Have fun and good luck!
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!
