First things first: This is a spring soup. It’s meant to be made when asparagus and fava beans are in season. Just because you can find these items in the supermarket in November, when they have been flown in from the other half of the world, doesn’t mean you should give them a second thought. Eat this soup when our half of the planet is awakening from its long winter nap and you’ll feel renewed, too. Click here to see more spring soup recipes.
