Asparagus Soup with Watercress

I wish I'd taken a picture of this soup. It was so bloody good. I had 6 omnis over for dinner tonight and they loved all three courses (asparagus soup, homeade vegan pesto tagilatelli with slow rosted tomatoes and baked cinnamon apples with soy ice cream and strawberries) but my favorite part was the soup.

Add the ingredients in this order

50g/2oz margerine
2 shallots, chopped
2 sprigs fresh thyme
450g/1lb asparagus, stalks roughly chopped, tIps set aside to griddle
125ml/4½fl oz vegan white wine (when you add this let the liquid reduce to half of what it is)
450ml/16fl oz vegetable stock (then simmer until the asparagus is tender and whiz up with a hand blender)
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Then griddle some asparagus tips with chives and place them in the individual bowls of soup with some fresh water cress.

I also cut up some day old ciabatta and baked chunks in olive oil, salt and pepper for croutons.

It was divine!
