I've tried so many different asparagus soup recipes and this is hands down the best asparagus soup. I've substituted cheddar for the Monterey Jack, and it's delicious. I've made this twice so far, and it will go into my rotation.
BEST asparagus soup I've ever had. I used fresh asparagus which I boiled, cooled, blended with a little milk., then added to hot soup. I didn't have milk on hand so I used about a cup of evaporated milk and 3.5 cups homemade chicken broth. DELICIOUS!
Loved it. I didn't have any hot sauce so I added pepper cheese mixed with cheddar
I think I will stay with cheddar cheese and instead of using frozen asparagus, I sauted fresh asparagus, celery and onion ahead of time.
This soup was very good. It had a smooth consistancy until I put in the cheese. Then it looked a bit curdled. Next time I make this, I will include some onion and use Velveeta cheese.
This was an absolutely excellent recipe. I changed a few ingredients and would not recommend straining the pulp. I did not add the hot pepper sauce, but otherwise, it was AMAZING!!!
