Elegant asparagus soup with black truffle oil recipe.
1 Bunch of medium size fresh asparagus
1tsp Susan Rice Truffle Salt & Pepper
1tbsp Susan Rice Black Winter Truffle Oil

Chop asparagus into pieces, removing tail end of stalk, and bring to a boil in chicken stock. Cook until asparagus is thoroughly cooked, and soft enough to puree.
In blender, add half of asparagus and half of stock, seasoning with Truffle salt & pepper, (repeat again for second half) and blend until pureed, then put mixture through a mesh strainer.
Garnish with Truffle Oil, a dollop of crème Fraiche, and serve immediately.
Garnish with fresh grated Black Winter Truffle (available from Susan Rice Truffle Products) for an extra bit of visual, and flavor appeal.
