Spring Asparagus Soup
Sweat onions and butter in small stock-pot until translucent, add asparagus and continue to sweat 2-3 minutes. Add heated stock just until it covers the asparagus. Season the broth with salt, pepper and a pinch of sugar. Simmer until tender, keeping asparagus green in color and be careful not to overcook. Transfer contents to a blender or processor. Puree until smooth, add heavy cream while blending. Adjust salt, pepper, and sugar. Pass through a fine strainer or chinois. Serve immediately. 8-10 servings.
