Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients:
3 Leeks, White & Pale Parts
2 Pound(s) Asparagus, Trimmed And Cubed
2 Tablespoon(s) Vegetable oil
2 Teaspoon(s) Grated lemon rind
5 Cup(s) Chicken stock
Directions:
Be sure to wash leeks thoroughly under cold running water, spraying
the water in between all layers to rinse away any grit. Coarsely chop
leeks. Cut asparagus into 1 1/2 inch lengths; set aside. In large
saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook leeks, stirring
occasionally, for about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook
for 10 minutes longer or until very soft. Stir in lemon rind; cook for
1 minute. Add asparagus, stock and 1 cup water; bring to boil. Reduce
heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until asparagus is tender.
Remove and set aside 1 cup of the asparagus tips. In blender, puree
remaining soup in batches until very smooth. (Soup can be covered and
refrigerated for up to 1 day.) Return soup to pot; reheat over low
heat. Ladle into bowls; garnish with reserved asparagus tips. Makes 8
servings. Formatted by Carole Walberg Recipe by: Daphna Rabinovitch
