A soup with crispy croutons on top might be a different way to use asparagus. But it is still very tasty and healthy. If you like asparagus you should try this soup because it is really good.
1 kg green asparagus
4 slices of sourdough bread
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small bunch chervil
2 onions, finely chopped
2 baking potatoes
20 g butter
1.2 liters chicken stock
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Cut the tops off the asparagus and cut the bread slices into cubes. Fry the bread cubes in the olive oil on a pan. When the bread is almost done put the asparagus tops on the pan and fry everything for the last 2 min. Remove the pan from the heat and sprinkle with salt. And lastly add the chopped chervil.
Slice the asparagus stalks thinly. Peel the potatoes and cut them into tiny cubes. Melt the butter in a saucepan and fry the asparagus, potatoes and onions soft and tender it. Add the boiling chicken broth and let the soup boil for 15 minutes.
Blend the soup and season with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Serve the soup with the fried bread cubes, chervil and asparagus tops and a spoon full of creme fraiche on top.
