Asparagus and Brie Soup

This is a great tasting soup and your family and guests will really love this one.

 

  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/2 lb. asparagus, pared and blanched
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 3/4 cups Piesporter white wine
  • 1  1/2 cups whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup Brie, rind removed.

In a saucepan heat the butter and add the asparagus, cooking just until tender.  Stir in the flour and cook for a couple of minutes.  Now add the broth, wine and cream.  Bring to just boiling and immediately turn to simmer for 10 minutes.

Transfer to a food processor and puree until smooth.  Return to the pot and reheat, but do NOT boil.  Stir in the cheese and simmer for about 5 minutes.  If this is not thick enough for your taste, just add more brie.

To bring this up a notch, add a square of puff pastry that would overhang the soup dish and bake until the pastry is golden.  This is so classy and fun.
