WHY WE LOVE IT

We recently started adding ripe avocado to our soup recipes because “Why Not?”, right? We got this idea from testing a lot of sauces and dips and spreads in Amie’s first cookbook, Eating Clean, and the feedback was stellar to say the least so we decided to play a little bit more in the kitchen to create more creaminess for you without gluten, dairy, soy or sugar. Yes, it can be done and it is quite delicious. Today we’re going to show you how easy it can be. All you need is a sturdy cutting board (like the one below), a sharp knife (the one we like using is shown below) and a big food processor (see our favorite one that we’ve been using for years down below).

HOW WE MAKE IT

PREP TIPS // We love to prep recipes in advance because let’s face it, we’re all busy and gone are the days when we have hours to put together a 2-hour meal every night of the week, which is why we enjoy sharing prep tips with you to help you get the most out of our recipes while saving you time and money.

AVOCADO PREP TIP // For this creamy asparagus soup recipe, we suggest using a very ripe avocado because that is where all of your creaminess is going to come from. We can’t stress this enough. If your avocado isn’t ripe enough, leave it in a brown paper bag overnight on your countertop. Because this soup uses avocado, we don’t recommend prepping this recipe in advance. We all know what an avocado looks like when it’s been sitting out for too long: it gets brown. We do suggest making it right before you’re going to eat because it is SO simple and will take less than 20 minutes to make from start to finish.

 


INGREDIENT SWAPS // You could swap another green vegetable such as leeks or broccoli for the asparagus. However, these ingredients would take longer to roast in the oven so be mindful that they would need more time roasting if you decide to use a different vegetable. Also, note that asparagus is naturally sweet so it will not taste the same if you use another ingredient.

Feel free to use any other fresh herb you’d like for garnishing. We love fresh parsley and fresh tarragon for this recipe, as well.

Here’s how we made this Easy Asparagus Soup in three simple steps.

STEP 1 // Roast the asparagus in the oven with olive oil, sea salt, and pepper.

STEP 2 // Combine the roasted asparagus with the remaining ingredients in a large food processor and puree until smooth.

STEP 3 // Transfer to serving bowls and serve.
