Preheat the oven to 375 F levels. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. (Or coat with a decent layer of cooking spray.)
Arrange the asparagus, onion halves and garlic clove cloves around the baking sheet, and brush with essential olive oil. Sprinkle with a few pepper and salt, after which bake for around forty-five minutes. Turn the onions when they get excessively dark at the base. Check up on the garlic clove too, when the cloves are golden and oozy inside (most likely after about twenty minutes), pull them in the oven.
Peel the garlic clove, and chop the asparagus into smaller sized (a couple ofInch) pieces. Reserve a few of the asparagus heads for garnish. Adding the asparagus, onions, and garlic clove right into a medium-sized saucepan, and add chicken broth and thyme.
To puree soup, you may either use:
An immersion blender:
Just put it directly who are holding cards that it is completely submerged, after which blend the soup until it's smooth.
A normal blender or mixer:
You'll most likely have to do this in batches - simply take a couple of cups and blend until smooth. (Also, take care not to overfill the blender or mixer!)
Be cautious dealing with warm/hot fluids! When the soup is pureed, return the saucepan towards the stove and produce soup to some boil over medium-high temperature. Then lower heat to medium, and stir in two and half (or cream) and vermouth. Season with a lot more pepper and salt, along with a dash of fresh lemon juice if you want. Garnish with asparagus heads.
