"I love this recipe and hadn't made it in years because transferring back and forth to the food processor created so much mess. I got an immersion blender for Christmas, and this soup is the first thing I thought of to use it for. Love it!"

"This is really pretty good soup. I love both brie and asparagus. It's a bit tricky to saute the asparagus until tender in the butter, but I think I'll get the hang of it. Thanks for a great soup!"

"It's been forever since I made this (it's from May/June 2000), but I still remember how rich and creamy and delicious it was. I lost it amidst all my Quick Cooking magazines, and just ran across it again today. I had marked it "YUM! Make this again!"

Now I'm going to!"
