Asparagus soup with smoked salmon


May is the best time for eating asparagus. You can eat it until mid-June. In the Netherlands people eat white asparagus. The most known dishes made of asparagus are boiled or steamed asparagus with hollandaise sauce and ham. I decided for something else…

On my dish today will be: Asparagus soup with smoked salmon.

Ingredients (for 1 person):

–          Ca. 500-600ml water

–          1 vegetable bouillon cube

–          1 small onion

–          1x1cm fresh ginger root rasped

–          2 slices smoked salmon

–          3 leaves of chives

–          1tbsp. crème 15%

–          1tsp. curry

–          ¼ lemon


  1. Boil water and add vegetable cube to the pan
  2. Peel asparagus and cut into 3
  3. Peel onion and divide for 2 pieces
  4. Add vegetables to boiling water
  5.  Peel ginger and rasp (leave unwanted fibres behind); add to soup
  6. Add curry and crème to soup and stir
  7. Take out asparagus tips and slice into small pieces
  8. Puree the rest of vegetables with blender
  9. Serve in a bowl with sliced salmon, chives and asparagus tips
  10. Sprinkle with lemon juice
  11. You can add optionally blue cheese. I did it with the second round. It was delicious…. 🙂

*Enjoy your meal*
