Asparagus is a spring vegetable and is therefore now available from local sources. Asparagus not only tastes good but is a very good source of fibre, folate, and vitamins A, C, E and K.

In this recipe I have added potato so the taste of the asparagus is not strong, and the soup was delicious, thick and hearty, and filling enough for a main meal.

It can be eaten hot or cold.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp oil
1 medium onion, chopped
tsp curry powder
tsp ginger
Zest and juice of a lemon
2 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
3 cups vegetable soup or a low salt packaged broth
1 cup light coconut milk
2 bunches asparagus, ends trimmed, cut into pieces
cup sour cream
chives or spring onions - I used mixture as have both growing

Method
Melt the butter and oil in a large saucepan.

Add the onion and some salt (up to tsp) and cook, stirring until the onion is cooked -about 7 minutes.

Stir in the curry powder, lemon zest, ginger and the potatoes.

Turn the heat down and continue to cook for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.

Puree the soup when it has cooled down a bit, and add a bit more salt if needed, plus some pepper to taste.

Serve this delicious soup with a dollop or two (or three) of the sour cream mixture, and eat with some crusty, buttered bread.

Also tastes great if heated up, and could therefore be made a day or two ahead.
