Cream of Asparagus Soup

Tonight for dinner I made a cream of asparagus soup. It seems like I’ve read a recipe for an asparagus soup somewhere recently, which is why I’d been wanting to make one, but I can’t remember where I saw that recipe! Anyways, I made up my own soup, based on what I had.

I sauteed one whole chopped sweet onion, 1 large bunch of chopped asparagus, about 1/8 cup chopped sage, and two peeled/chopped potatoes, in several tablespoons of olive oil. I added 1/2 tsp. sea salt. When the vegetables were soft, I added some chicken broth and water, boiled it for a few minutes until the vegetables were done, and then pureed the soup. Then, I stirred in about 1 cup of heavy whipping cream, and added about 1 tsp. of dried dill. I probably could have used less cream, since the soup was already thick from the potatoes. But, it tasted great!
