I saw a thread about "creamed" soups down at the bottom and thought I would add my favorite.

2 T olive oil
1 sm onion, chopped
3 T all purpose flour
4 c chicken/vegtable broth
1 lb asparagus, tough ends discarded, cut into 1” pieces
1 t dried summer savory
Salt and white pepper, to taste
Pinch of cayenne pepper
DF Sour cream/plain yogurt (opt)

Melt butter in heavy medium saucepan over medium heat. Add chopped onion and cook until tender, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Add flour and stir 2 minutes. Gradually mix in broth. Bring mixture to boil. Add asparagus pieces and summer savory and simmer until asparagus is very tender, about 25 minutes. Cool slightly.
*Drain asparagus, reserving cooking liquid. Puree asparagus in food processor. With machine running, Gradually add 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Return mixture to saucepan* or you can just use a stick blender). Season with salt and pepper. (Soup can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.) Bring soup to simmer. Ladle into bowls. Top with dollops of sour cream or yogurt, if desired.
