It takes about 45 minutes to make, mostly boiling time (once ingredients are ready) but absolutely love love this soup! Added a little bit of red chilli flakes to the recipe..
I was thrown by that 10 cups of potatoes also. Just assumed it meant 1 though. I like my soup with a bit more body, so I kept the asparagus tips intact and added them after pureeing the soup. I also used skim milk, and it turned out good, although a bit of work.
I absolutely love this soup. I've made it quite a bit, and the only things I change are to add more dill and crushed red pepper. Sure, it's a bit of work, but the soup is delicious! I freeze some in double portions and eat it throughout the month. I grab a few multi-grain crackers and settle in for a yummy lunch.
this soup was DELICIOUS and I didn't even use all the ingredients. I didn't put in potatoes or chives since I didn't have any on hand...but it still turned out great :)
