Creamy deliciousness – White Asparagus and Coconut Soup

Creamy deliciousness, the perfect way to describe this dish.
I had never before tasted white asparagus, and to be honest I did not quite like the taste and texture of them grilled, so I decided to turn it into a soup, and boom it did hit the bull.
In my home country soups are part of our daily meals, throughout the year.
However, as I live in Mozambique, usually I reserve them for cooler days, apart, of course from my gazpacho (find it here https://heelsandspices.com/2018/02/gazpacho/) or my zucchini and cucumber (https://heelsandspices.com/2017/04/cucumber-and-zucchini-soup) soups that are delicious served cold.
For me, either chunky or smooth, soups are great specially to use left over ingredients.
I like to have them as a side or as a main meal when appetite is low and I just need something comforting.
This one is really creamy and tasty. The thyme gives it a finish touch and imparts a great flavor.
