White Asparagus Soup

Light and refreshing with the touch of lemon that is very decent. On top with roasted asparagus spears sprinkeled with fleur de sel.

500 g white asparagus
1 lemon
2 tablespoon heavy cream

1/2 teaspoon sugar

fleur de sel

Peel asparagus and cut the ends. Do not throw away! Bring it to cook together with 500 ml water, sugar, salt and lemon zest.

Reduce half. Chop the rest of the asparagus and put spears aside. Cook asparagus stock with the chopped asparagus and puree. Add juice of the half lemon, pepper and heavy cream. Cook for 1 minute. Heat olive oil and fry spears, sprinkle with fleur de sel.

das Rezept gefällt mir, viel Spargel, nicht nur Schalen, und die gebratenen obendrauf. Nichts als Spargel.
