Asparagus Soup Recipe (Spargelsuppe)

This simple asparagus soup recipe allows the white asparagus (Spargel) to show its full flavor. When Germans cook with asparagus, it is often the thick and tender stalks of white asparagus, which are specially grown to be less bitter than the typical green asparagus we encounter in the US.
