Creamy Asparagus Soup is luscious and so simple you can make it any day of the week. If you LOVE asparagus, then you will love this easy low-calorie recipe for healthier version of creamy asparagus soup.

 

Fresh asparagus are steamed for a few minutes, then pureed and simmered again with some broth, garlic powder, green onions, and a touch of light cream.  Light and delicious tasting soup, creamy asparagus soup will be your new favorite soup!

For those who are looking for a dairy-free version, omit the cream completely and you still get the same luscious creamy texture and taste.

The green onions add a nice flavor to the asparagus, while giving it a subtle soft texture to the soup.  The touch of cream lightens the color to a lighter, much prettier green along with adding some velvety texture to it.

Don’t worry, no need to add a ton of cream, 2 tablespoons of it will do the trick.
