So I made this soup a few weeks ago and we loved it. It’s super easy (heh) and if you like asparagus, it’s right up your soup alley. Having recently become the proud mama of a bouncing baby Vitamix, I naturally wanted to try making soup in it. The recipe is written to be made in a Vitamix, but if you don’t have one it’s ok. We made it the first time without one. Being really new to this wonder of a machine, I was really afraid of burning up the motor. I don’t know why, it’s just a fear I have. I think I should have run it for longer to heat the soup more. The flavor was still good, but it wasn’t as hot as we’d have liked, which is why I didn’t rate it as high as the last time we made it. Also, I didn't have a lemon, which you really do want for this. The recipe says 4 servings, but we like a big bowl of soup, so we get more like 2 ½. Whatever. I also like to have a sandwich with my soup, so we naturally grabbed the Daiya havarti with garlic and jalapenos, sliced a tomato and made some grilled cheese. It was yummy.
