2 tablespoons olive oil

Place potatoes in stockpot and cover with cold water. Cover the pot and bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until tender. Add the asparagus, boil for 3 minutes, drain, and set aside.

Rinse out of the pot, then in the same pot saute the onion in the olive oil for 5-7 minutes; add the garlic, salt and black pepper,; and saute 2 more minutes. Add the broth and bay leaves, boil for 10 minutes, discard the bay leaves. Add the potatoes, asparagus and cashews, heat through, then puree three-quarters of the soup in a blender or food processor. Reheat if necessary. Add a squeeze of lemon and serve garnished with fresh dill.
