Along with fresh asparagus, this soup uses leeks (onion's cooler cousin) and flavoured cream cheese for a silky, smooth, delicious texture. You'll have a bowl of homemade asparagus soup in no time with this easy recipe.

Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Special Extra
Garnish with additional cooked asparagus tips just before serving.
Substitute 4 cups small fresh broccoli florets for the asparagus.
Serving Suggestion
Serve with a mixed green salad and whole grain roll to round out the meal.
Use a Blender
No food processor? Use a blender instead. Blend asparagus mixture, in batches, in blender until smooth, securing lid with your hand while blending. Or, use an immersion blender right in the saucepan.
