But in this simple soup, it shines at center stage. What to buy: Pistachio oil, with its nutty, multidimensional flavor, makes a sophisticated garnish for this light-bodied soup. You can find it at some health food stores or online. If you can’t locate it, walnut oil is a good substitute. This dish was featured as part of our Recipes for Passover photo gallery.

                                                                  • Yes No 1 medium yellow onion
                                                                  • Yes No 3 tsp kosher salt
                                                                  • Yes No black pepper
                                                                  • Yes No 1/2 tsp sweet curry powder
                                                                  • Yes No 2 lb white asparagus, ends
                                                                  • Yes No 1 medium yukon gold potato
                                                                  • Yes No 3 cup water
                                                                  • Yes No 2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
                                                                  • Yes No pistachio oil
                                                                  • Yes No 1/2 cup salted and roasted pistachio
                                                                  • Heat the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat until foaming. Add the onion and 1 teaspoon of the salt, season with pepper, and stir to combine. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion has softened, about 5 minutes. Add the curry powder, stir to combine, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
                                                                  • Add the asparagus, potato, and another teaspoon of the salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the potato just starts to soften, about 10 minutes. Add the water, broth, and remaining 1 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer until the asparagus is fork tender, about 10 to 15 minutes.
                                                                  • Using a blender, purée the soup in batches until smooth, removing the small cap from the blender lid (the pour lid) and covering the space with a kitchen towel (this allows steam to escape and prevents the lid from popping off). Taste and season with additional salt and pepper as needed. To serve, divide the soup among bowls, drizzle with pistachio oil (if using), and sprinkle with pistachios.
