saucepan bring stock or broth to a simmer, add trimmings and let stand
15 minutes. Rinse spears, pat dry and cut into 1 1/2 pieces,
reserving tips. Strain stock or broth into a large saucepan and add
the asparagus stalks, shallot, potato and salt and pepper to taste.
Bring the liquid to a boil over high heat and simmer the mixture,
stirring occasionally, for 25 minutes, or until asparagus is tender.
Meanwhile, in a saucepan of boiling salted water blanch the asparagus
tips until just tender, drain and refresh. In a food processor or
blender puree the soup in batches until smooth, correct seasoning and
return to saucepan. Heat until hot. To serve: ladle soup into bowls
and garnish with reserved asparagus tips, yogurt, lemon peel and dill.
