Creamy Asparagus Soup

Delicious and Easy Asparagus Soup | The Baking Beauties
I know this Creamy Asparagus Soup may not look like much, but it is so delicious. The adults loved it, the kids loved it, what more do you need to make a great soup? This soup did have the asparagus tips in there, but you know what? They sink. So, although they were there, they just didn’t want to be photographed. :) With spring being the time for asparagus, I hope you will give this soup a try, I think you’ll really enjoy it.


Creamy Asparagus Soup
  • 1 lb green asparagus
  • 1/2 large onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cups gluten-free chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream or heavy cream
  • 1/4 taspoon fresh lemon juice, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  1. Cut tips from asparagus, reserve for garnish.
  2. Cut remaining asparagus into 1/2 inch pieces.
  3. Cook onion in olive oil in a 4-quart heavy bottom pot over medium-low heat, stirring, until softened. Add asparagus pieces and salt and pepper to taste, then cook, stirring, for 5 minutes. Add chicken broth and simmer, covered, until asparagus is very tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  4. While soup simmers, cook reserved asparagus tips in boiling salted water until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain.
  5. Puree soup in batches in a blender (or use an immersion blender, my choice) until smooth. Return soup to pan.
  6. Stir in sour cream. Season with salt & pepper. Bring soup to a boil and whisk in butter.
  7. Add lemon juice and garnish with asparagus tips.

    Thanks so much for entering this in our SOS Challenge this month :) Unfortunately, our guidelines ask for vegan recipes or those with vegan alternatives. I'd love to keep this in the roundup–would you be able to add vegan options for the broth and cream?

    @Ricki, Duh, I'm so sorry, Ricki. I was concentrating on gluten-free & asparagus, forgot about the vegan aspect. Please remove me from the round-up. Love the recipes that are there, and I'll leave a link here, I just won't participate this time round. Sorry!

    This looks just perfect for Spring. I wanted to grow asparagus in my garden, but did not end up doing so. I will definitely have to go pick some up and try this one. So simple and fresh!
