    • Add the asparagus and fry over low heat for about 1 minute.
    • Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute.
    • Stir in the stock or water and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
    • Bring to the boil, half cover the pan, then simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, until the asparagus is very tender.
    • Cool slightly and then process the soup in a food processor or blender until smooth.
    • Press the pureed asparagus through a sieve into a clean saucepan.
    • Add the milk by pouring and stirring it through the sieve with the asparagus so as to extract the maximum amount of asparagus puree.
    • Melt the remaining butter and fry the reserved asparagus tips gently for 3 to 4 minutes to soften.
    • Heat the soup gently for 3 to 4 minutes.
    • Stir in the cream and the asparagus tips.
