Tools and ingredients
- 2 peeled and diced medium potatoes
- One half tsp salt
- 4 cups of chicken broth
- 2 large leeks
- One half tsp pepper
- 1 tbsp regular butter
- 1 tbsp cannabis butter
- One half cup whipping cream
- 1 pound of asparagus
- Food Processor
Trim the roots off of the leeks and leave only the white part and an inch or two of green. Run the leeks and split them lengthwise and slice crosswise.
Sauté the leeks in the canna butter and butter for about 12 minutes or until they’re soft. Add in the potatoes, salt, pepper, and the chicken broth and bring the mixture to a boil. While this mixture cooks, trim the asparagus tips off and set them aside if you are using a garnish, otherwise you can throw them away.
Discard the woody ends of the asparagus and chop the remaining pieces up. Add them to the boiling soup. Reduce the heat of the burner and simmer, uncovered, until the vegetables are tender (should take around 10-15 mins on low heat)
Move the soup to the food processor (or a blender if you don’t have a processor) and blend them until they are all pureed. Put the soup in a clean saucepan and add in the cream. Mix thoroughly. Your soup is now ready. If you are using a garnish then put the asparagus tips in salted water and cook for 3 or 4 minutes. Drain well and garnish each serving with the asparagus tips. Enjoy!
