METHOD

1. Cut off the asparagus tips and set aside. Cut the asparagus stems into small slices using a food processor to help break up the fibrous threads that could make the soup stringy. 

2. Heat oil in a stockpot over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, onion, celery and fennel. Stir-fry for 7 minutes. Add the sliced asparagus and potatoes. Cook for an additional 3 minutes.

3. Pour the stock and wine; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and allow to simmer, covered, until the potatoes are soft and tender, 25-30 minutes.

4. Turn off the heat. Add the basil, dill, tarragon, mustard, cream (or milk), salt, and pepper.

5. Puree the soup pot using a blender until smooth.

6. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Cook asparagus tips for 2 minutes. Drain and add the tips to the soup.

7. Garnish with a slice of hard-boiled egg, and a few of the fennel fronds.
