Remove from the heat and gradually blend in the milk and stock. Cook, stirring, until the soup thickens a little. Add the asparagus, reserving two tips for garnish, and simmer for 5 minutes. Rub the mixture through a sieve, or puree in a blender or food processor. Add salt and pepper to taste. Reheat the soup and pour into two warmed bowls. Garnish with the reserved asparagus and serve with Croutons. Note: use some of the liquid from the canned asparagus if it is not too salty.
