       Yield: 6 servings
       1 lb Asparagus; trimmed,
            -and cut into 1-in lengths
       1 lg Baking potato; peeled and
            - cut into 1/2-in cubes
       1 md Yellow onion, peeled
            -and cut into slim wedges
   3 1/2 c  Chicken broth
     1/4 ts Ground mace
     1/8 ts Ground nutmeg
     1/2 ts Salt
     1/4 ts Freshly ground pepper
       6 tb Freshly grated Parmesan
   PLACE ALL THE INGREDIENTS except cheese in a large saucepan. Bring the
   liquid to a simmer over moderate heat, then adjust the heat so that it
   bubbles gently. Cover the pot and simmer the broth for 30 to 35 minutes,
   until the vegetables are very tender. Cool the broth, still covered, for 20
   minutes. Puree the broth and the vegetables in batches, in a blender or in
   a food processor fitted with the metal chopping blade. Return the puree to
   the saucepan, set it over moderate heat and bring the soup just to serving
   temperature. Ladle the soup into heated bowls and top each portion with 1
   tablespoon of the Parmesan cheese.
