Asparagus Cilantro Soup
Such a wonderful and perfect soup for spring. This is the "Asparagus Cilantro Soup" from The Real Food Daily Cookbook. I love this recipe so much. Generally I like to always make new recipes, because life is short. But this is one I've made over and over. It's a perfect flavor balance - the cilantro gives a great complexity to the clear flavor of the asparagus. Served alongside some delicious toasted rye bread. Mmm.
Also, Yummers Potatoes, our asparagus-crazed kitty loves when I make this soup. He starts freaking out and meowing all over the house while it's still on the stove top. Once we sit down to eat, he is trying to headbutt our elbows, so that we'll spill some and he can lick it up. Seriously, he is crazy for the stuff. I always take out a few asparagus tips for him.
