  • Cook asparagus in boiling water for 3-4 minutes, until bright green, but still a bit crunchy. Drain.
  • Heat milk and stock together, with coriander, if using.  Add asparagus and purée (use an immersion blender right in the soup pot, or divide into batches and purée in a regular blender).
  • Taste for seasoning and serve, garnished with asparagus tops, if using.
