Combining decadent truffle with asparagus results in this creamy Black Truffle Asparagus Soup that is perfect as an appetizer or a meal in itself — and can be enjoyed hot or cold (as a chilled soup).
I had the opportunity to visit Napa, California and while I was there I road the Napa Valley Wine Train that passed by various vineyards in the area. On that train we were enjoying wine and a three-course meal. This is when I had my first experience with an asparagus soup! I enjoyed it enough to come home to make my very own version. My family loves soup and many nights, soup is the main entree.
Tips when making the Black Truffle Asparagus Soup:
- Don’t over cook your asparagus because it can affect the coloring and texture of the soup.
- Once your ingredients are blended, be sure to strain your soup to remove any small pieces.
- The truffle sauce is what makes this dish memorable so you will definitely reap the benefits the truffle brings to the table.
- The heaving whipping cream and Creme Fraiche will keep this soup creamy and ready to enjoy with a great tasting grilled cheese sandwich.
- Plus, it stores perfectly for leftovers that will last several days!
