Gouda Cheese Asparagus Soup Recipe

Kathy Whyte/ WNBF News

Smoked Gouda Asparagus Soup (prep. time 40 minutes. Serves 6)

½ lb. asparagus, diced with tips set aside

½ onion, diced

2 ribs celery, diced

2 Tb. olive or vegetable oil

1 Tb. butter + 1tsp. for sautéing the asparagus tips

salt

pepper

½ tsp. curry powder

3 Tb. soy sauce

½ C. grated Gouda cheese + a little more for garnish

3 C. vegetable stock

1 C. milk

2 Tb. flour 

Heat oil and 1 Tb. butter in a medium sauce pan over medium/high heat and sauté the diced asparagus stalks, onion and celery until tender. Stir in flour to make a roux. Add stock, salt, pepper, curry powder and soy sauce. Adjust seasonings to taste.  Heat remaining butter in a sauté pan over medium-high heat and sauté the asparagus tips until brown.  Remove from heat.

With an immersion blender, puree the soup until fairly smooth. You can puree the soup in batches in a blender. Be very careful not to try to do too much of the hot liquid at a time using the blender method!

With the soup off the heat, stir in the milk and cheese.  If you want a thicker soup, you can put a ladle-full of the soup in a bowl and slowly whisk in additional flour and stir that back into the soup.

Garnish with the browned asparagus tips and reserved Gouda.  Serve with crusty bread or crackers.
