How to make asparagus and potato soup recipe

- Add the stock and asparagus. Let cook covered until vegetables are tender and cooked through. This can take up to 10-15 minutes.
- While the bacon is cooking, heat some oil to fry it until crispy. Break into bite-size pieces. Once the vegetables have been shredded, place them in a blender or food processor.
