Cream of Asparagus Soup

Asparagus tips added to this pureed soup add interest and flavor...




In a large pot, saute the onion in the butter over medium heat until soft.  Add the chopped tomatoes and the asparagus pieces.  Stir and sauté for another minute. 

Add the broth, the dill, and the tarragon.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes until the asparagus is tender.  Turn off the heat and cool.

While the soup is cooling, blanche the asparagus tips in boiling water for two or three minutes until they are tender.  Rinse under cold water.  Put them aside.

In a blender or food processor, puree the soup in batches.  Add the cream in small amounts. 

Return all the soup to the pot and heat again over low heat. Season with the sea salt and cayenne pepper. Serve in bowls garnished with the asparagus tips.
