Oh, the list of things I miss about Germany is long. The weather (yes, I like four distinct seasons, and they have that), the easy access to travel, the people, and of course the food. If you have never seen Spargel, you may have to check out farmer’s markets as Spring produce continues to bloom, or investigate the inventory at a specialty store. Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, or here in Texas, Central Market all have these beautiful white stalks.
Note that this recipe works just as well with regular green asparagus. Just note that the flavor, while still delicate, will be a bit more pungent than the white variety. But if you can find it, you are in for a treat! Spargelsuppe will delight you and your guests for sure!
(One more picture? I’m feeling nostalgic, so naturlich!)
