From all our asparagus-filled dinners a few weeks back, I had saved all the asparagus ends for a day like today. Such gloomy weather always puts me in the mood for a bowl of soup. I simply added the asparagus ends to a mirepoix of one onion, two stalks of celery and two carrots. Since I wanted to keep it vegan, I added water to it once my vegetables were softened. To bump up the creaminess of the soup, I add a cup of unflavored soy milk. A whirl in the blender and a garnish of chives and soup's on!
