  • Step 1

    Peel the asparagus and cut off woody ends, then cut it into smaller pieces. 

  • Step 2

    In a large pot, add the asparagus and broth. Bring to boil and cook over medium heat for 20 minutes.

Press and hold the power button to start the hand blender and move the hand blender around, and up and down, to blend the ingredients for approximately 1 minute or until soup is completely smooth. Add lemon juice, nutmeg and season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Step 5

    Stir roux into boiling soup and continue cooking for additional 1-2 minutes.  

  • Step 6

    Add crème fraiche and egg yolk to a small bowl and mix well. Stir this mixture into the soup to combine well.
