Delicious Condensed Cream of Asparagus Soup

Condensed cream of asparagus soup is a thick, creamy soup that offers a delightful blend of flavors and textures, making it a versatile and popular ingredient in many recipes. Its base is typically a rich mixture of asparagus puree, cream, and a carefully balanced blend of seasonings, which results in a smooth and velvety texture with a subtly earthy and slightly sweet asparagus flavor. The condensed form of this soup allows for a more concentrated flavor, which can be diluted according to the needs of the recipe or personal taste preferences. This soup is often used as a standalone dish, warmed and served with a splash of cream or a sprinkle of herbs, or as a base for more complex soups and stews.

In the culinary world, condensed cream of asparagus soup is especially valued for its versatility. It’s a common ingredient in casseroles, where it adds creaminess and depth of flavor without overpowering other ingredients. Its thick consistency also makes it an excellent choice for creating rich sauces for pasta, chicken, or fish dishes, infusing them with its unique asparagus essence. The soup can be easily enhanced with additional ingredients like cheese, garlic, or spices to create a more complex flavor profile. Not just limited to savory applications, it can also be used in innovative ways, such as in a creamy asparagus risotto or as a base for a luxurious vegetable pot pie, showcasing its ability to elevate a wide range of dishes.

    How much does this recipe yield? I can’t find condensed cream of asparagus soup in any stores anymore and am looking to use it in place of the store bought 10 3/4 ounce can called for in my recipe.

    1. Courtney ODell says:

      It makes about 12 ounces!
