This creamy asparagus soup is amazingly simple. Well, you need a Vitamix--so it's not that simple. But, if you have a Vitamix it is super easy. With four ingredients (asparagus, cashews, avocado and garlic) and seasonings you can have a creamy asparagus soup in less than 15 minutes. If you have a regular blender or a cuisinart, skip the cashews and it will still be creamy and delicious.
Asparagus Soup Recipe
1 bunch asparagus
1 clove of garlic
4 cups water
2 handfuls of cashews (about 1/2 cup)
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon onion salt
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Cut asparagus into 3 inch pieces by cutting the whole bunch of asparagus twice.
Put in pot with four cups of water. Add a clove of garlic (either chop or use a garlic press.)
Bring water to a boil and simmer for 10-15 minutes until asparagus is still green but well cooked.
But asparagus into high speed blender or vitamix and process until smooth.
Add seasonings and process until creamy.
Serve with chives and a drizzle of olive oil.
