In a heavy pot, heat oil or butter over medium heat and cook leeks, garlic and thyme for 5 to 6 minutes, or until leeks are soft.

Pour vegetable broth into the pot. Add chopped potatoes and simmer for 20 minutes, or until potatoes fall apart. Add asparagus and simmer for 5 to 6 minutes, or until asparagus is tender.

Allow the soup to cool slightly and puree in batches in a blender or food processor. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Stir in cream, if desired, and heat through.

Notes

If you would like a little garnish: Serve scattered with herbed croutons or with baguette slices spread with chèvre cheese.
