Step by step

Potatoes, asparagus, onion, cream

If you want to make this soup lighter and less fatty you can leave out the cream. If you are serving it to children you can turn it into a main course by adding some cheese or a tablespoon of grated parmesan. Remember, as a general rule children prefer the taste of sweet vegetables, such as carrots, potatoes and peas.
Given the success of soups in everyday cookery, there are many commercially available creamed soups, not only based on vegetables but also on beans, cereals, chicken, fish, etc etc. Obviously they do not have the same taste and the same nutritional value of those made at home, but they offer the consumer a quick meal to be enjoyed either hot or cold.
