Special Extra

Garnish with additional cooked asparagus tips just before serving.

Substitute

Use a Blender

No food processor? Use a blender instead. Blend asparagus mixture, in batches, in blender until smooth, securing lid with your hand while blending. Or, use an immersion blender right in the saucepan.
