Soup need not be necessarily reserved for the cold weather. We enjoy soup all through the year because they are easy to put together and very healthy too. A simple bowl of soup along with a crusty bread is all we crave during some week nights. While in India, I have never heard of asparagus, but the lack of vegetables in my current place pushed me to try new vegetables. My first attempt was sambar with asparagus years ago, and it was a flop. I never considered trying it again since we fell in love with asparagus fry and now this soup. Garbanzo thickens the soup nicely and all the flavors mingle well. Off to the recipe.
