I love soup so much I can even eat it during hot summer days. Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables and I always end up just simply roasting it in the oven. I decided to make a soup out of it because I just re-discovered my immersion blender which happens to be one of my favorite kitchen tools! This is such a quick soup you can put together last minute. It’s everything you want in a creamy light soup and I promise you can never tell that its filled with all kinds of goodness for you. Don’t forget to sprinkle the top with my low-fat seasoned croutons 🙂
1 Tbsp butter
1 yellow onion; chopped
2 bunches of asparagus; cleaned
4 cups of chicken broth
1 cup of plain almond milk (or regular milk)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 Tbsp fat-free sour cream
1. In a large pot, melt better on low heat. Add onion and sauté on low for 2-3 minutes. Snap the tough ends off the asparagus and chop the asparagus into 2 inch pieces. Add to the pot with the onions. Add chicken broth, almond milk, salt and pepper. Cover and cook about 20-25 minutes or until asparagus is very tender.
2. Remove from heat, add sour cream and use an immersion blender to puree until smooth. On of my favorite parts to this soup is sprinkling my Easy Seasoned Croutons and a dollop of sour cream! Easy, light, healthy, and wholesome…everything you need in a soup.
