      1 lb Asparagus, lower ends only
      1 c  Leek greens; chopped
      1    Bay leaf
      1    Celery stalk; chopped
      1    Yellow onion; chopped
      4 bn Parsley; chopped
      2    Garlic cloves
      5    Black peppercorns
      1 sl Gingerroot
    1/2 ts Salt

MMMMM------------------------FOR THE SOUP-----------------------------
      1 lb Asparagus
      2 tb Olive oil
      3    Leeks; white parts only
      1    White onion; chopped
      2    Shallots
      1 ts Fresh thyme
      1 tb Parsley
      6 c  Stock (see above)
      1 pk Silken soft Mori-Nu tofu
    1/8 ts Black pepper
    1/8 ts White pepper
      2 tb White miso
 
   Snap off the lower ends of asparagus where they easily break and
  bend. Chop these and add to the other stock ingredients with 8 cups
  water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 20-25 minutes and strain. Cut
  off the very tips of the asparagus and set aside. Chop the middle
  pieces and set aside.
  
   Saute the leeks, onions and shallots in olive oil over medium heat
  for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add the middle pieces of asparagus,
  salt, pepper and parsley and stock. Simmer for 10 minutes or until
  asparagus is tender. Blend with the miso and strain well through a
  fine screen or food mill.
  
   Blend the tofu and add to the soup. In another pot bring a few cups
  of water to a boil with a little salt. Cook the asparagus tips until
  crisp-tender and strain in a colander. Garnish soup with asparagus
  tips. Serves 6-8.
