DEAR SOS: We dined at Luna Park restaurant in West Hollywood and would like to have the recipe for the cream of asparagus soup. It is very creamy, yet no cream is used in the soup, we were told.
DEAR CILA: True. The recipe uses a potato as the thickener and raw spinach for color. Both are healthful and tasty additions. The fried asparagus garnish is decorative but optional.
