Preparation

  1. Add your asparagus, chopped onions, and 1/2 cup of chicken broth into a large saucepan. Cover the saucepan and bring it to a boil over high heat.

  3. Pour the contents of the pan into a blender and puree the vegetables. Set this aside.

  5. Whisk in the remaining chicken broth and increase the heat to medium. Stir constantly until you reach a boil.
  6. Next, stir in the asparagus puree and the milk into the saucepan.
  7. Place your 1/2 cup of sour cream in a small bowl, then add in a ladleful of the hot soup, and mix.
  8. After a quick mix add the sour cream/soup mixture and lemon juice into the saucepan.
  9. Stir while heating to serving temperature but do not bring to a boil.
