I've been making this recipe for a number of years and it's definitely a favorite! I omit the the pimento and add cooked carrots and bacon instead.

I've made various asparagus soups, but this one is special by the curry powder - perfect! I will also use freshly-sauteed mushrooms, not canned, and will add some frozen hash browns as I do to most soups for a bit more chowder consistency. Asparagus soup tastes like spring!
