Each spring, my husband takes our dogs and searches for wild asparagus. He's been so successful that I finally developed this recipe. We look forward to this special soup every year.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 4, 2013

Asparagus has always intrigued me as a child and also as an adult. Can something that looks so much like a tree actually taste good?!

But it does! And it's delicious in this soup!

I have a tendency to overcook asparagus so don't do that!! Otherwise all you have is mush!

We often add chicken. And mushrooms are a no-no in our house so you can easily customize!!

It tastes good with a fruity-flavored muffin hot out of the oven.

Loved it! Brought it to school to share and got rave reviews. I didn't have wild rice on hand so I used a packaged of uncle ben's ready whole grain medley, microwave and it's 2 cups. This will be added to my soup recipes. Thanks for sharing!!!

This was very tasty. I would modify it a little by cutting down on the broth and adding more wild rice. It was a hit here for dinner tonight!

bland needs more of a cream base I really had to doctor it up to make it somewhat taste good, not very impressed
