I had only ever had asparagus soup once before (incidentally, that soup is what made me realize that I do actually like asparagus), but this was my first time cooking it myself. I must say, one of the best things about Jamie Oliver's recipes is that they are usually pretty simple. This soup is no exception, and it's particularly healthy, too. He says to serve it with a piece of toast and a fried egg, which I'm sure is lovely, but the soup can stand on its own.
So glad one more meal's worth of leftover soup in my fridge!
