Super Aphrodisiac Soup


2 lb. (approx 1 kg) fresh green asparagus, trimmed

8 cups water

4 tbsp. butter

1 cup minced onions

1 cup minced leeks

1 tbsp. chopped garlic

1/4 cup flour

1 cup cream

1/4 cup creme fraiche

6 hard-boiled quail eggs, halved

Salt and pepper to taste



Add the water to a saucepan and season with salt and bring the liquid to a boil. Add the asparagus and cook for 3 minutes. In a large saucepan, melt the butter and cook onions and leeks. Season with salt and pepper. Sauté the mixture for 2 minutes. Stir in the garlic and flour and cook for another 2 minutes. Add cooked asparagus and the liquid. Bring the liquid to a simmer and cook for 25 minutes, or until the asparagus is very tender. Place the mixture to a blender and puree the soup until smooth. Put the soup back to the saucepan and add in the cream. Remove soup from the heat and chill it. Before serving, garnish soup with a drizzle of creme fraiche and quail eggs.
