This a wonderful tasting and just yummy soup to make and you will devour it.
- 1/3 cup butter
- 8-9 oz, asparagus, pared and blanched, cut in thirds
- 1/4 cup flour
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 1/2 cup Pinot Grigio (or similar) white wine
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1/2 cup brie cheese, rind removed
In a frypan, melt the butter and saute the asparagus until tender. Stir in the flour, reduce the heat and cook for about 3 minutes.
Now add all the liquids (broth, wine and cream) and increase the temperature to medium and bring to a boil. Once starting to boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes.
Transfer the soup to a blender and puree well. Put through a strainer back into the pot and reheat. Now stir in the Brie and simmer for 5 minutes (until melted).
This is one soup that should be served hot so be careful. Oh, by the way, the rest of the wine is for you to enjoy with your soup. See? No waste. Lucky you.
