Here is a recipe for asparagus  soup that even my 8 year old daughter enjoys:
Potato Asparagus Soup with Spring Onions
2 cups thinly sliced spring onions or leeks(whites and tender parts of greens)
1 1/2 pounds wax potatoes, peeled and sliced thin (I use any kind I have) 
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 1/2 quarts vegetable stock or defatted chicken broth ( I use water mixed
with vegetarian chicken broth powder)
3 sprigs fresh thyme
salt & pepper to taste
1 pound asparagus, cut into 2" pieces
chopped chives as a garnish
     Put all except cives into a pot and simmer until potatoes are tender.
Garnish with chives before serveing. It's that easy! This could probably be
made a crock pot too.    Since I don't like to waste any form of food I save
the ends cut off the asparagus and peel them with a vegetable peeler. My
motto: Waste not want not!   Chris
