Cream Of Asparagus soup is such a favourite of mine. I love the rich silky smooth consistency, and of course the flavour of fresh asparagus.

Vegan Cream of Asparagus Bisque

SOUP
 1 large bunch fresh asparagus (1 pound)
 3 cups vegetable stock (or water)
 2 medium leeks (about 2 cups), thinly sliced - mostly white and some tender green parts.
 2 shallots or 1 yellow onion, minced
 3 large cloves garlic, minced
 ¼ tsp cayenne
 Fresh ground black pepper to taste
 Salt to taste (depending on saltiness of vegetable stock)
 ½ package silken tofu (about 3/4 cup)
 1 tbsp white miso (optional)
 2 tbsp olive oil
FRITTERS
 4 medium potatoes (boiled)
 ½ cup canned black beans (or cook your own)
 ½ cup corn kernels (fresh frozen or canned)
 2 green onions, chopped
 Handful of chopped cilantro
 1 tsp cumin seeds
 ½ tsp sea salt
 ½ tsp crushed chilli flakes
 ½ tsp garam masala
 Olive oil for pan frying
1

Cut off tougher end of asparagus stalks and peel each stalk about 2 inches up. Then cut into 2 inch pieces.

2

Heat oil in 4-quart soup pot. Add garlic, leek, shallots. Sauté for 4 to 5 minutes on medium high heat. Add asparagus and spices. Cook for another 3 to 4 minutes. Add vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook covered for 20 minutes.

3

Turn off heat, allow to cool for a few minutes before pouring into blender along with tofu and miso (if using). After blending, pour back into soup pot. Keep warm on low heat.

4

While soup is simmering for 20 minutes, mash cooked and peeled potatoes in a medium bowl. Add all remaining ingredients. (If using frozen corn, first rinse under hot water and drain). Mix well with a fork. Form into 2 inch patties and place on a plate until you are ready to pan fry.

5

After the soup is blended and ready, heat some oil in a non-stick pan. Cook 5 or 6 patties at a time, depending on size of pan, on medium high heat for about 2 minutes per side, until slightly browned. You will have extra fritters than what's required for the bisque, but they are delicious as a leftover snack.

6

Ladle soup into large shallow soup bowls. Gently place 2 to 3 fritters in centre of each bowl. Enjoy!
