Method

In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.

Add onion, celery and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables soften, 6 to 7 minutes.

Stir in 5 cups water, sliced asparagus and peas.

Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer until asparagus is very tender, about 15 minutes.

Working in small batches, purée soup in a blender.

Strain the soup through a sieve, pressing down on any solids with the back of a spoon to remove as much liquid as possible.

Pour it back into the pot. Place over medium heat until just simmering. Stir in salt and lemon juice.

Run a vegetable peeler over the reserved asparagus stalks, making asparagus ribbons.

Ladle the soup into bowls and drizzle the top of each with a little cream, if using.

Top with a few asparagus ribbons and dill.
