Healthy and delicious
Cream soups do not need to be heavy. This vegan cream of asparagus soup uses nondairy milk to achieve a silky smooth finish.
For a more traditional soup, simply swap out the nondairy milk for cream or half-and-half!
Vegan cream of asparagus soup recipe
1-1/2 pounds chopped asparagus
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 large yellow onion, diced
Leaves from 1 sprig thyme
3 cups homemade or low-sodium vegetable stock
1/2 cup almond or soy milk
1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
Pinch of black pepper
In a large Dutch oven, saute the asparagus in olive oil over medium heat, until slightly caramelized.
Stir in onions and cook until translucent. Add the thyme leaves and vegetable stock, cover loosely and simmer until the asparagus is soft, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool slightly.
Transfer soup to a blender and puree until smooth. Strain soup through a fine mesh strainer into a saucepan. Discard any solids. Add the almond or soy milk, salt and pepper and stir until hot. Serve.
