ASPARAGUS SOUP

Looking for the perfect fresh and light soup? Creamy Asparagus Soup is exactly the one and only way to use up fresh asparagus. This soup is prepared with only a handful of ingredients, and it makes for a delicious lunch, but also a beautiful start to a wonderful dinner. 

Not only is asparagus delicious, but it’s also packed full of nutrients, a good source of fiber, folate, vitamins A, C, E, and K. 🙌 

Clearly, Asparagus Soup is healthy, but also gluten free, low carb, Keto-friendly, and really, really good! 😍

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.

      You know it’s good when a toddler likes it! 😉 hehe Very happy to know that you enjoyed it! THANK YOU!! 😀

  2. I can admit im hard to please ….. But this was excellent. I didnt have heavy cream so i used sour cream added 2 teaspoons of Ms Dash original… I dont like salt and lime instead of lemon…. Soooooooo good!!! Will make again

  3. This soup is delightful prepared exactly like the recipe directs us. My problem is I had only 1 pound of asparagus the first time I made it and could only make half the recipe. I will not make that mistake again!
    I plan on making it as a starter course on St. Patrick’s Day.
