How to make our creamy asparagus soup?

Fresh asparagus is steamed for a few minutes and pureed.

Next, they get simmered with some broth, garlic powder,Β green onions, and a touch of light cream.Β 

For a final touch, we added some green onions to flavor the asparagus while giving the soup a subtle soft texture.Β 

The touch of cream lightens the color to a lighter, much prettier green along with adding some velvety texture to it.

And, without having to use a lot of cream, which makes this asparagus soup even healthy!

Ingredients Needed for Creamy Asparagus Soup:

  • 1 bunch (about 16 ounces) of fresh asparagus, rinsed

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 cup (organic) chicken or vegetable broth

  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  • 1/8 tsp.  cayenne pepper

  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder

  • 2 Tbsp. half-and-half cream

  • 1 scallion green onion – diced

  • Optional: Parmigiano-Reggiano grated cheese, for serving

Directions to make creamy asparagus soup:

(*full recipe card below!)

1. Cut off the woody ends of the asparagus, about 2 inches from the bottom.

2. In a large pot, bring 1 cup of water to a boil, and add the asparagus.  Cover and lower the heat to simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, until the asparagus is tender.

3. Transfer the asparagus including the liquid to a blender, or use an immersion blender and puree until it’s completely smooth. Pour the asparagus back into the pot.
