Eating Real Recipes: Grilled Asparagus and Sweet Onion Soup

 

April through early June is generally the prime time for harvesting the asparagus variety grown in many CSA gardens.  This year’s warmer temperatures, however, brought out an early crop with the last of the stalks going to seed this past week.  That means this year’s asparagus harvest is over, and only those of us who worked the farm throughout the past couple of months got in on the sweet goodness of freshly picked asparagus.  I love it grilled, but I wanted to make something special to honor my last fresh stalks.  I found a couple of asparagus soup recipes that caught my eye, so I decided to combine the best of both.  What resulted was a soup made from grilled asparagus that was so incredibly delicious I’m already dreaming of next year’s crop!
