Cream of Asparagus Soup

According to the USDA Nutrient Database, 100 g of boiled and drained asparagus (which is about 6-7 spears of 1/2″ base) contains about 4.11 g of carbs and 2 g of fibre (2.11 g effective carbs). They have a short season around here and they are delicious in a variety of ways. We got some in our CSA share the last two weeks, then on the weekend my cousin gave me a big bunch (plus we ate some while we were visiting my cousin). We’ve had them with a poached egg, with an egg and hollandaise, roasted with balsamic vinegar, and yesterday I had a lot to get through so I made this delicious cream of asparagus soup from epicurious.com. Another nice treat is eating them with tarragon mayonnaise, with or without the smoked salmon.
