Asparagus Soup

Even though blogging hasn't made it to the top of the list this Lent, cooking often has.  Here's an asparagus soup recipe I tried for one of our Lenten soup suppers.  It was a definite hit! 

I mostly followed the recipe, though did make some of the suggested change:
Instead of 1/4 margarine, I used 2 tbsp butter and 2 tbsp olive oil
I added 4 cloves of garlic
I added an extra potato
I didn't puree everything, just about 3/4 of the soup which left some nice texture
I ditched the can of chicken soup
I used 6 tsp of of bouillion instead of the 4 tbsp that were recommended.
I skipped the soy sauce
