It's pretty much summer again here in Townsville, which means gorgeous blue skies, a bit more humidity and 30+ temperatures--which I love. But in the past few weeks we have had several 'unseasonably cool' days, some with rain. I realise that my perceptions of cold days are what others would consider balmy, but a high of 26 during the day is my idea of soup weather. Or at least, I realised it's the closest I'll get to soup weather for several months, so I may as well take advantage of it.
Soup weather + spring vegetables coming from the southern states = Potato-Asparagus Soup, from Vegan with a Vengeance.
This is a really satisfying recipe. It's thick and rich, but without any soy or even much fat. The creaminess comes from a potato, which gets blended. And the flavour comes almost solely from two very delious ingredients: asparagus (from Victoria) and dill (from my garden).
I think I was even wearing sweatpants while I made this.
