Vegetarian Asparagus Soup Recipe
Heat the peanut oil in a saucepan over low heat. Add the carrots, celery and onion, season lightly with salt and pepper, and cook for 10 minutes. Add the stock and bring to a boil quickly over high heat. Lower the heat and simmer until the vegetables are completely tender, about 15 minutes. Add the asparagus and simmer until just tender, about 5 to 7 minutes. Puree in a blender and strain. Add the dill if desired. Adjust the salt and pepper to taste.
