Asparagus Soup

It’s asparagus season, and oh how we love those little trees! I typically just roast and eat, asparagus are such a delicious and quick veggie to have around but after a quick cold snap in our springtime weather, I decided I’d make soup!

I recently got myself a Vitamix blender, and am thrilled, mainly for all my daily smoothies, but it also will be great for quick soups! This recipe came together in about 20 minutes and 95% of it was the asparagus roasting. The soup came out smooth and creamy and although I will admit, I thought it would be a little bland or thin, this soup was the perfect texture and taste to pair with some fresh bread and eat away!

INGREDIENTS  

  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • 1 onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • Crumbled goat cheese

INSTRUCTIONS 

  1. Roast asparagus and quartered onion in the oven at 425 for 20 minutes.
  2. Place asparagus, onion, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper, and vegetable broth in @vitamix or any high powered blender.
  3. Blend until smooth. Once blended, add a dollop of goat cheese and blend again.
  4. If your blender does not eat up the soup, place in pot on stove to thoroughly warm soup.
  5. Pour into bowl and add a few crumbles of goat cheese for topping and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top.
  6. Finally, dip tasty bread throughout, so tasty!
