Chilled asparagus orange soup, from A Veggie Venture
At long last, local asparagus have landed at our farmers market. Yippee doo dah! When it comes to asparagus, I'm a huge fan, and I'm also a bit of a snob. I buy in season, eat as much as I can every which way, and then -- a brief six weeks later when the growing season ends -- I give up asparagus for the rest of the year. When I saw this unusual recipe from A Veggie Venture that combines asparagus with orange, I had to share it with you. Alanna recommends you make this chilled asparagus orange soup ahead, and let it sit for at least 12 hours to allow the flavors to mellow together. I hope you'll try it.
