  1. To start the asparagus soup recipe you have to boil the eggs for about 10-12 minutes. Reserve them unpeeled until cool.
  1. In a pot put 2 tablespoons of oil. While it is heating, cut all the ends of the asparagus and then add them to the oil to brown them. Set aside and save the oil.
  1. Peel the eggs and chop the whites very finely, and reserve them for the end of the decoration. Set the yolks aside for now.
  1. In the pan where the oil is on the fire, put a clove of peeled garlic and cook until it reaches a golden color.
  1. Add the asparagus cut into small pieces and sauté them well, add the water and cover them. Cook for about 20 minutes or until they are tender when pierced.
  1. Set aside and pour into a blender glass, add the two cooked yolks, the rest of the oil, the salt, and the vinegar, and beat until you have a very fine soup texture. Add more salt and vinegar if you feel like it is stronger and continue mixing.
  1. After that, when it is hot, put everything in a bowl so that it reaches room temperature.
  1. Your recipe for asparagus is almost done, now put it in the fridge for at least an hour (depending on how cold you like to drink it). To serve, put it on a soup plate and decorate it with the already chopped egg whites and the asparagus tips.

Substitution of Ingredients

Something that makes this asparagus gazpacho stand out from other asparagus soup recipes, is that you can make as many replacements as you like, and it’ll still taste amazing.

As well as other cold soup recipes, you can add some bread slices to make it thicker. This is a nice trick especially if it ends up being too runny.

The best part is that you can add more vegetables and play with them. You can add some tomatoes to make a traditional gazpacho recipe, or fruit like an apple to make it sweeter.
