  • Pulse the blender several times to break everything up and then select smooth soup.
  • When the smooth soup function is done, ladle into bowls and serve.
  • If you want to top it like I did. Make an egg over easy and cut with a 3" biscuit cutter. Place a few basil leaves on top of the soup. Add the egg and roasted asparagus on top and sprinkle a few red pepper flakes or freshly ground black pepper and some finely grated parmesan cheese.
