#SundaySupper: I Whisk You Crab and Asparagus Soup

TUM_ANCS_1212_1

The weather has been unbelievably cold and for me, that means something warm, something quick, and something close to the heart – crab and asparagus soup. We normally share this meal on special occasion since we rarely have family gathering.

Each year, when we get together for Christmas, Mom asks each one of her kids what we want to have on that day. Yeah, she tries to cook every meal on special occasion; and this soup is always listed on the menu. The fresh flavors of asparagus and crab definitely show a contrast in textures and something that can be enjoyed at anytime.
