Vegan Asparagus Soup
This vegan asparagus soup is dairy free and super creamy. It is even Whole 30 friendly, and you would never know. Soup is one of those foods that I eat year-round. The creaminess of it is super comforting and sometimes I will add some rice in to it to make it more substantial. Turning vegetables into soup was how I got into most vegetables. I still remember the first time I tried cream of cauliflower soup. It looked like potato soup so it wasn’t very scary looking and then I tasted it and I was shocked that it was good! There was probably so much cream in it, but that’s besides the point. Since then I have been making creamy soups with all sorts of vegetables I never ate as a kid. I wish this type of soup was an option back when I was a kid because I surely wouldn’t have refused to eat vegetables for as long as I did.
Nowadays, I love giving my daughter tastes of my soup. She loves it! I give her a little bit in a bowl or sometimes I mix this with rice for her dinner. Also, this is a vegan recipe, but I am not vegan. Because of that sometimes I add sausage into this soup. If you are vegan, there are tons of vegan meat substitutes like tofu or impossible meat that would taste awesome in this soup.
Vegan Asparagus Soup is a great soup to make for a mixed crowd because it is vegan, kosher, gluten free, dairy free and yet DELICIOUS! This recipe even makes great baby food if you would like to make this for a friend. If I do make it as baby food, I add less water at the end so that it is a bit thicker.
What part of asparagus do you not eat?
You can eat the whole asparagus spear except for the purple-ish brown part on the bottom. If you hold the asparagus spear on each end firmly, you can gently bend the asparagus so that it bows out away from you. It will naturally split off the part that you should not eat.
Can I freeze homemade asparagus soup?
Yes, you can easily freeze this soup. Once you make it, let it cook, and then add to freezer safe containers. It will last in your freezer for about 6 months.
