Roasted Garlic and Asparagus Soup

This soup is just what you need on a chilly spring day, served up with a side of grilled cheese sandwiches!

This soup will definitely not be for everyone - especially if you are not a fan of asparagus. However, I love asparagus and wish I had been able to enjoy it much earlier than my adult life because YES! Roasted asparagus is my favorite form of asparagus and when I saw this, I was intrigued because it seemed like it would make a great soup. I didn't really have the rest of the family's blind trust with this because it didn't have meat and it almost looks like a cream soup, which I guess it almost is with the milk. Thankfully, even my asparagus-hating oldest son liked this soup. He thought that it didn't taste as bitter like asparagus normally does and I agree that the asparagus does taste a little more mild and is perfect with the garlic. We served up this wonderful soup with just regular ole grilled cheese sandwiches for a more filling meal :)

A soup that it maybe a little more to most people's liking that my family also loves is this One Pot Philly Cheesesteak Soup. I'm also really excited to try out this Cream of Asparagus-Potato Soup from Culinary Adventures with Camilla that has potatoes and bacon in it!
