Simply Delicious Asparagus Soup

8 tbl. (1 stick) butter

3 1/3-4 cups chopped onions

8 cups vegetable or chicken stock

2 lbs. asparagus

1/2 cup cream

salt and pepper to taste

fresh lemon thyme or dill to taste

Heat butter in a large soup pot, add onions and cook until tender.  Add stock; bring to a boil.  Cut tips off of the asparagus: reserve.  Chop stems and add to pot. Simmer gently until asparagus is very tender, 15-20 minutes.  Stir in cream, salt and pepper.  Add lemon thyme or dill; if you use dry herbs, add them to the onions as they cook.  Makes 8-10 servings.
