Creamy Asparagus Soup

This rich and creamy asparagus soup is an easy, healthy recipe that comes together in under 30 minutes! This low carb recipe is keto-friendly and can be made vegan too!

It’s hard for me to walk past a bundle of asparagus at the grocery store without picking it up. I am obsessed with this vegetable and so this soup is one that I am excited to share with you all! This delightfully smooth soup stars my beloved asparagus to make a fresh-tasting, nutritious soup appetizer or meal.

Asparagus soup is healthy due to the nutritious vegetable that is packed with vitamins A, C, E, K, as well as folate and a host of other nutrients! It is low in calories but packs quite the nutritious punch. This particular recipe is made even healthier (and lighter) as I make it without any heavy cream. I use regular milk instead, but if you are vegan, coconut milk or another non-dairy milk alternative works well here too!

The beauty of this soup is in its simplicity. There is not much to fuss over and it is so easy and quick to whip up, you’ll wonder why you haven’t already included this recipe into your regular rotation! If you are a lover of all things asparagus, this is a must-try recipe!

How to make Creamy Asparagus Soup

To make this soup, you will need:

  • 2 pounds asparagus, chopped
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup milk (or coconut milk)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until they begin to turn translucent.

Add the asparagus and broth and bring to a boil on high heat. Once boiling, reduce to medium heat and let soup simmer until the asparagus is soft, about 10 minutes.

Remove from heat and let cool. Once cool, blend soup in a food processor or blender until it is pureed.

Return to pot and warm on medium heat. Add milk and salt and pepper to taste. Serve!

I hope you enjoy this healthy soup as much as I do!
