So, it’s getting to be that time of year again when I crack out the old soup cookbooks and post tabs on the select recipes that I plan to try during the hibernation months. This is a great little recipe, and since I seem to be on an asparagus kick, it sounds incredibly appealing. I also really like the elements of flavor used in this particular recipe, between the lemon juice, fresh thyme, and hearty chicken stock. This is the perfect guilty pleasure for a cold winter day.
I would venture to say a little fresh shaved Parmesan cheese would also taste fantastic as a melted topping. A little roasted ham wouldn’t taste too shabby either if you are looking to add a little punch of protein.
Keep in mind when buying your ingredients that you can easily swap out some of the high-fat elements, like whipping cream, for lower fat versions such as buttermilk. I also find the sour cream makes a nice replacement or addition to creamy soups, as its lower in fat, but has a great thick consistency and a delicious savory tang.
I will be posting up a bevvy of soul warming soup recipes here throughout the winter for you all to try, so be sure to check back. Happy souping!
