  • Heat olive oil in a deep cauldron. Add sliced leeks and simmer at medium heat for 6 to 7 minutes. Add broth, adjust seasoning, bring to a boil then lower heat to maintain simmering. Add asparagus stems to the broth and simmer for another 6 minutes. Add spinaches and cook for about 3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and cool down 10 minutes before setting in the blender. Once the soup is well liquified, set once in a sieve (still if you like a more rough texture, you're not in the obligation to do it). Refrigerate at least 2 hours or even an entire night.
  • Meanwhile, cook asparagus tips for 2 to 3 minutes until it becomes tender and soft. Serve each of your guest with a little of soup into bowls, few asparagus tips and a spoonfull of yogurt on top.
