I made this for dinner, using fresh asparagus. Inspire of the fact that it was of such a tiny diameter it surely would be super-tender, I was unable to cook it to be tender and I cooked it to death! Then I blended the heck out of it! I still picked hard stem pieces out of my mouth while eating. This , of course, has nothing to do with the recipe. The soup's taste was very good . If I make it again I will use canned asparagus to see if those stems would be any more tender.

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!
