the Ingredients

20151023095349 Row Starters 9
  • 910 grams asparagus, tough ends removed
  • 6 scallions, root ends trimmed
  • 80 milliliters extra-virgin olive oil
  • 960 milliliters chicken broth
  • 60 grams tightly packed fresh baby spinach
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 60 milliliters heavy whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh tarragon leaves
  • Kosher salt

Instructions

  • 01Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (180°C to 230°C).
  • 02Place the asparagus and scallions in a large bowl and turn to coat them with the oil. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the asparagus and spring onions over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until marked by the grill but not dark, 4 to 6 minutes, turning once or twice. Transfer the vegetables to a cutting board. Coarsely chop them and place in a medium saucepan.
  • 03Add the chicken broth, spinach and pepper to the saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat on the stove. Reduce the heat to medium–low and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes to blend the flavours. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the vegetables to a food processor and purée them. Return the puréed vegetables to the saucepan and mix well. Whisk in the cream and tarragon. Warm the soup over medium–low heat for 3 to 5 minutes, but do not let it boil or it may separate. Season with salt and serve warm.
