Spring Asparagus Soup

asparagus soup recipe

 

When I first tried this recipe, I was skeptical about how good an asparagus soup could be. It didn't sound overly appealing, but when I saw how simple this particular recipe was, I thought I would give it a go. Turns out I loved it!

 

I was very surprised with how much flavor it had with so few ingredients. I made it many times last year and have been waiting for asparagus to come back into season this year so I could enjoy it again. I finally found some beautiful fresh Spring stalks in the market last week and whipped up a batch and had delicious lunches for days.

 

This vibrant soup is smooth and creamy with a hint of sweetness from the soaked cashews and a zing of fresh lemon. Another win in the world of healthy soul food! High in antioxidants, asparagus is a good source of fiber and folate. It helps detoxify the body and protect against illness and aging.
