Ingredients

17 asparagus, average size 340 g
2 3/4 cups chicken broth 700 mL
5 tsp rice, long grain 20 g
1/3 cup cream 15% 85 mL
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.

Method

  1. Prepare the asparagus: boil them 7-8 min until tender. Drain the asparagus, then immediately plunge them into a bowl of cold water to stop cooking (this also helps keeping a nice, green colour). Cut the asparagus into pieces, keeping the tips for decorating the bowls. Meanwhile, cook the rice and set aside.
  2. Warm up the broth in a saucepan, pour in the cooked rice and the asparagus. Cook 5 min, then purée the soup in a blender or food processor. Pour the soup back into the pot, add the cream and adjust the seasoning.
  3. Reheat the soup for a few minutes, then serve it into bowls, garnishing with the reserved asparagus tips.

Remarks

The soup keeps up to 6 days in the refrigerator or up to 2 months in the freezer. Cream should not be added before freezing, but only later when the soup is reheated.
