    When made it is a light and wholesome soup and delicious as a light meal or lunch or as an appetiser.



    1. Trim and rinse the asparagus and then steam in the thermomix by adding the chicken stock and water to the mixing bowl, place the simmering basket into the mixing bowl and put the lid on without the measuring cup, place the asparagus spears tips up through the hole in the lid so the tips are sticking out the top.  Steam for 25 mins / 110 degrees / speed 1.  When done leave all of the cooking stock in the mixing bowl. Remove the asparagus and cut off 2-4 of the asparagus tips to set aside for serving.  


    2. Take the simmering basket out of the mixing bowl and put the asparagus back into the cooking stock.  Add all remaining ingredients except the eggs to the Thermomix, blitz for 10 secs / speed 10.


    3. Select automated custard setting for 3-4 portions of normal thickness; add the eggs and skip through the instructions to the automated start.


    4. Turn the dial to start the automated cooking process and when done, blitz for another 45 secs / speed 5 gradually increasing to speed 9 to make it creamy and smooth.


    Serve immediately with cracked pepper, extra fresh herbs and/or parmesan and with reserved asparagus tip/s rested in the centre of each bowl.
