Briana's Favorite Cream of Asparagus Soup

Rose Mary Mogan


I named this soup in my cookbook, in honor of my beautiful daughter Briana, it is by far her favorite Cream of Asparagus Soup. It is rich and nice and creamy, full of flavor from the hint of tarragon, and over all just can't be beat. Try it and see if you agree. We love soup in our household, and this one is at the top of the list.
