Recipe Ingredients for Roasted Asparagus Soup with Spring Herb Gremolata

5 lbs asparagus (trimmed cut into 2-in pieces)
4 cups chopped leeks (white and pale green parts only)
1/4 cup olive oil
6 cups chicken broth (low-salt)
2 tbsp Italian parsley, minced
4 tsp lemon peel, finely grated
1 tbsp fresh tarragon, minced
1 garlic clove, minced

Recipe Directions for Roasted Asparagus Soup with Spring Herb Gremolata

  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Combine asparagus, leeks, and oil in very large bowl; toss to blend. Divide between 2 large rimmed baking sheets. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast vegetables until asparagus pieces are soft and leeks are golden, stirring occasionally, about 45 minutes; cool on sheets.

  2. Spoon 1/3 of vegetables into blender; add 2 cups broth. Blend until smooth. Transfer to large pot. Repeat 2 more times, using half of remaining vegetables and 2 cups broth for each batch. Warm soup over medium heat, thinning with more broth by 1/2 cupfuls, if desired. Season with salt and pepper. DO AHEAD: Can be made 1 day ahead. Cool slightly. Cover; chill. Rewarm before continuing.

  3. Mix parsley, lemon peel, tarragon, and garlic in small bowl for gremolata.

  4. Ladle soup into bowls. Sprinkle with gremolata and serve.
