I came up with this soup one weekend when my wife and I were hungry for something better than the standard. The first attempt turned out fantastic, and now I’ve got the recipe down to 20 minutes. —Chris Dalton, Mundelein, Illinois
"My kids wouldn't eat asparagus when they were young," writes Lois McAtee. "But after trying this smooth creamy soup, they all wanted seconds." To hurry along preparation, the Oceanside, California reader relies on frozen asparagus.
It makes me feel great to prepare a delicious soup like this one and set it on the table in my favorite soup tureen. Even my three children love it. The next day, we scramble for the leftovers...if there are any.

It's not difficult to fix a batch of this smooth, comforting soup. It has wonderful homemade goodness. A singe steaming bowl really warms me up...but I usually can't resist going back for seconds.
