Grown under the ground, white asparagus are the lighter counterpart to their green cousin or what most of us think of when we picture asparagus. Featuring white asparagus, this Asparagus and Mint Cream soup is a hearty and creamy soup that can be served for lunch or dinner. Combining the flavors and textures of white asparagus, potatoes, onions, garlic, and mint, this soup is filling and flavorful. Serve this Asparagus and Mint Cream with homemade croutons.

The flavors in this cream blended well to make a rich, lemony-minty-garlic undertone contrasted with the slight cabbage flavor of the asparagus. The hot croutons absorbed the cream.
