HOW TO MAKE ASPARAGUS SOUP

Here, we are going to cook the asparagus with onions until tender and then puree the entire thing into a smooth and silky soup. Heavy cream and lemon juice are added to make it rich, bright, creamy, and full of fresh flavor. 

  1. Start with trimming the asparagus and cutting each asparagus stalk into 1-inch pieces.
  2. Heat up oil and butter in a Dutch oven or stockpot and add in the onions.
  3. Stir in the prepared asparagus and season with salt and pepper; let cook over medium-high heat for 5 minutes.
  4. Add vegetable broth and bring to a boil; lower heat to a simmer, cover with a lid, and continue to cook for 12 to 14 minutes, or until asparagus is soft.
  5. Next, you will want to reach for an immersion blender to puree the soup. You can also use a regular blender, but blend the soup in batches. 
  6. Once soup is completely pureed and smooth, put it back in the pot and set over medium heat. Whisk in heavy cream until blended. Then, whisk in couple tablespoons of lemon juice.
  7. Now, for the important part; taste test. This soup doesn’t rely on a lot of seasonings, and for that reason, you will most likely need to add more salt and pepper. Even lemon juice.
  8. Once you’re happy with the taste, ladle soup into bowls, garnish with chopped parsley, and serve.

I think this soup would also be great with a garnish of fresh chopped chives, diced crispy bacon, or flavored croutons. A swirl of sour cream wouldn’t hurt, either. 

HOW TO STORE LEFTOVERS

  • Store Asparagus Soup in an airtight container and keep in the fridge for 4 to 5 days.

CAN I FREEZE ASPARAGUS SOUP

  • This soup is cream based, and for that reason it won’t freeze well. If you intend to make a batch for the freezer, make the soup without the cream, and add the cream only after reheating it.

    This soup is so good! I’ve tried another asparagus soup recipe before, I may like this slightly more πŸ™‚ And my husband complemented it too, said it’s really good. Also my toddler seemed to like it πŸ™‚

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      You know it’s good when a toddler likes it! πŸ˜‰ hehe Very happy to know that you enjoyed it! THANK YOU!! πŸ˜€

  3. Dionne O'Hara

    Came out perfect. It may not have even really needed the milk. I added red pepper flakes and a dash of tumeric just for some kick.
    Got some left over for lunch today too!! Yum Yum

  4. The Mom Chef ~ Taking on Magazines One Recipe at a Time

    I love creamy soups like this! I could probably finish off the whole pot on my own.

    But, yes, we all face these food issues with our kids, right? They learn; we learn. πŸ™‚

  5. Chef Gerald@bistrogerard

    Cream of asparagus soup is one of my all time favourite dishes! Yours looks divine, I wish I could have some right now! I hope your daughter will learn to enjoy it too when she gets a little older, in the mean time well done for persuading her to eat the asparagus tips πŸ˜‰

  6. Shea

    I LOVE asparagus soup! I’ve tried to re-create a version of it I had on a Disney cruise that was the best I’ve ever had. I’m definitely going to try yours. Looks delicious πŸ™‚

  7. Terra

    Growing up I hated asparagus. Then while on a trip to Europe, I had pureed Asparagus Soup. It was love at first site…um, I mean bite. I am excited to enjoy this recipe, I have not had it since that wonderful experience in Wales.
    Take care,
    Terra

  8. cozydelicious

    This soup looks lovely, I don’t think I’ve ever had asperagus as a soup. But I’ve just starte dto see them pop up at the market, so this is perfect.

  9. 5 Star Foodie

    Thanks for sharing the story about your daughter trying the raw asparagus πŸ™‚ The soup looks fabulous, love it! Makes me cheerful thinking that the spring season is around the corner!

  10. Kristi Rimkus

    Cute story. I had a picky eater too. One picky and one who would eat anything. Your soup looks amazing and I love anything asparagus!

    Kristi

  11. zerrin

    This is right up my alley! Never had asparagus in a soup! As a soup person, I must try this!
    My husband is just like your daughter, he doesn’t like vegetables pureed even in soup. He likes to see them in soup, so I puree half of it for me and leave the rest for him. So you are lucky that your daughter doesn’t hate vegetables at all.

  12. Kristen

    I just adore asparagus soup. Yours sounds delightful!

    My sons were not very good veggie eaters. My daughter loved all green food…go figure! She is a little more picky now that she is older, but she still gobbles up most green vegetables.

  13. Mateja

    Wonderful soup Kate! Your daughter is adorable!!!! My daughter still eats just raw carrots and she is 17. Have a great weekend πŸ™‚

  14. Claudia

    I was your daughter. Hated them mushy when cooked but could live on salads. I still am not wild about “mushy” vegetables but oh how I love them pureed in soup. This springtime soup welcomes me. And yes, it gets so much easier when they can talk. (And say “no” all the time) At least you know.

  15. Carla Meine

    I know what you mean about the guessing game. The great news is what you learn with the first one doesn’t help you with the second (or third). They all come here with their own ideas of what they like and don’t like. Good luck.

  16. Sprinkled with Flour

    How funy:) I just had Asparagus the other night, and my son tried it for the first time. He loved it! I was so shocked:) Eating the asparagus got me thinking that it had been a long time since I’d had cream of asparagus soup, which I love. Great timing!

  17. something_good

    I was just posting a cream of sweet corn soup :)) I love cream soups and indeed the vegetables are tastier this way :). Great recipe.

  18. Kankana

    i so enjoy reading these stories about mom and kid and their struggle with food and eating .. wonder if it will sound this much fun when I have one , whenever I have one πŸ™‚
    I love grilled asparagus .. and this soup looks so tasty .. wonder if my hubby with like it. He is not a soup fan and kind of a kid at times when it comes to food !

  19. Lauren @ L-Mo Cooks

    Same deal with my baby lady. It turns out, though, that she loves vegetables…as long as they’re mine! If it’s meant for her, forget about it! I love asparagus, so soup will be on the menu to share with the wee one.

  20. City Share

    I have to admit that I don’t think I have ever had cream of asparagus soup. I don’ t know why not – I like creamed soups and I like asparagus. This might just be the push I need. Thanks.

  21. Cheryl and Adam

    Must be something soupy in the air. We just had cream of broccoli soup for lunch and were discussing this very thing, cream of asparagus for tomorrow (we’re on kind of a soup kick here lately), and yours looks like just the thing! Thanks!

  22. Scarletta @ Scarletta Bakes

    This post is fantastic. First, because I have been so COLD lately that I have been craving soup, but had hit a cooking block because I couldn’t think of the type of soup that I really wanted – you solved this one for me! Second, I love the photographs in this post, and finally, I really love your story. Thanks so much and have a fantastic weekend! πŸ™‚

  23. Becky

    We love asparagus,. but have never made asparagus soup. We still have winter here in Chicago, so we’ll be making this soup soon. Yours looks so good.

    Please stop by my blog to pick up the Stylish Blogger Award, which you deserve.

      1. Katerina Petrovska

        Hi!
        Yes, you can, but it won’t be as creamy. Make sure to whisk continuously when adding in thee milk.

  24. Liz

    Oh, shoot! I should have saved all those asparagus ends I broke off before dinner last night! This soup looks fabulous…and I had to laugh at your daughter’s first taste of one of my favorite veggies~

  25. Melissa@EyesBigger

    ooooo! I am so making this. I can’t believe I’ve never seen Cream of Asparagus soup before – I swear I don’t live that sheltered a life! But I do love them. This looks great! And I was just like your daughter as a kid – did not like mushy veggies at all!

  26. Susan

    Oh! I can’t wait until we can get good fresh asparagus! This soup is such a springtime tease! I had to chuckle about your ‘sprouts’ hesitancy to eat puree … probably too much like ‘baby food’! Kids are so finicky about textures and tastes, huh? It could drive ya crazy!

  27. Lisa {AuthenticSuburbanGourmet}

    Loved your story! That soup looks and sounds amazing. It is 8pm and I have not yet had dinner and your post is making me drool. Wish I had a bowl right now. πŸ™‚

  28. A little bit of everything

    if you find the secret to baby talk from day 2 please let me know. we are right now at finger pointing stage, little better than simply guessing but still a long way before she starts talking.
    the soup sounds great. we love asparagus, cooked :d
    thanks for sharing, hope you’ll have a wonderful Friday

  29. Kim - Liv Life

    I love asparagus soup, put in a bit of cream (or milk!) and it’s even better. My husband though has a different opinion, and I’d love to compare his “eeewww” face with hers!!

  30. happywhennothungry

    Hahah love your story! I’ve never tried asparagus raw and am guessing it’s not that good, but your soup def looks so creamy and delicious. Yum!

  31. kitchenarian

    I love asparagus and I can’t believe I have never had asparagus soup. This looks so good.
    I love your vegetable story. I would have never gotten my children to eat green soup when they were young! Great post.

  32. veggietestkitchen

    wow, interesting re: the vegetable in puree form. well, less work for you now, right πŸ˜‰ all kids are different i suppose. do you think she likes fruits mainly because of the natural sweetness/sugar?

    as someone who grew up with a mom who is a great cook (much like yourself) but was a huge softee when it came to accomodating our likes/dislikes, I’ve gotta say, I wish my mom would have put her foot down and made me eat a lot of things I only discovered recently. i’m a bit of a different case because i realized through a love of cooking how great foods are that i never thought i liked. but i have many cousins and friends (cousins mainly, maybe it just runs in the family!) who are really horrible eaters. and i feel BAD for them!!!

    cheers.

  33. Sandra

    :)) Awesome story..mine don’t like mashed stuff either, just mashed potatoes..but everything else raw or just 5 minute steamed, which is still pretty much raw:)) This soup looks tasty, but I am not huge fan of asparagus..can eat it but my face would be just like your Ana’s:) -ewww -you can do imagination:))
    Great pictures Kate and the story!!!

  34. Unrivaledkitch

    I love the story about your daughter. I hope my niece likes bussles sprouts, bok choy, and butternut squash etc. Shes not gonna be like her dad( who is insanely picky but I’ve gotten him to be soooo much better then before) if i have anything to say about it. Shes gonna be the most gourmet baby on the planet. lol My best friend says her son has been spoiled by my cooking of all kinds of vegetables he eats green beans and peas and all kinds of things πŸ™‚

    Yum i love asparagus so much and its so beautiful and plentiful out here right now. I think my sisters tired of it but i could eat it every day πŸ™‚

  35. Mina @ Angellove's Cooking

    I’ve never been cooking asparagus soup, but now you are making me really curious :)… Your soup looks so delicious, that I feel like I should taste it :))!!

    And by the way, when my son was a baby and has needed to eat only purees – he has preferred just and only vegetables ones πŸ™‚ like no other baby in the neighborhood…
