Four miles from my house is a charming eatery called Magpie Restaurant. It is located on the equally charming Historic Main Street in what was once the Spanish governor's home (In more recent history it became infamously known as “the witches house.”), in the lively city of Saint Charles, Missouri on the banks of the Missouri River, a city that was the gathering place for Lewis and Clark in1804.
Magpie oozes quaint ambiance indoors and out. I love to dine al fresco at a table on the lovely cobblestone patio with a view of the street where horse-drawn carriages are not unusual. They are known for their soups, salads, quiches, and mouthwatering desserts. I've previously shared their recipe for Baked Potato Soup here. Today, with asparagus season upon us, I am sharing their recipe for Asparagus Soup. I consider myself in the know when it comes to soups, so you can trust me when I tell you that this is, by leaps and bounds, the best asparagus soup I have ever eaten.
