This is really good you may want to double it. I used white asparagus because I am in Germany and it is “Spargelzeit” (asparagus time) and white asparagus is loved by all. We enjoyed the soup with a nice crusty loaf of Roggenbrot (rye bread).
2 or 3 leeks
1 small onion
2 tbs. butter
2 small potatoes
1 medium carrot
1 and 1/2 cup hot water
2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup uncooked rice
10 stalks of asparagus
1/2 pound spinach
1 cup of light cream
Preparation: Clean and remove the green tops and roots from the leeks, about one cup. Dice onion, about 1/4 cup. Melt 2 tbs. butter in a large soup kettle; add leeks and onions and cook slowly, covered, until vegetables are soft but not brown.
Peel potatoes and cut into quarters, then into slices. About 1 1/4 cup. Add the potatoes, the carrot peeled and thinly sliced, hot water and salt. Cover and cook slowly for 15 minutes.
Add rice and the top 3 or 4 inches of the asparagus cut into small pieces. Cook soup for 25 minutes longer. Add the cream and bring the soup to the boiling point. Serves 6.
