Ingredients

  • 8 oz asparagus chopped
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 small onion chopped
  • 1/2 clove garlic minced
  • 16 oz vegetable stock
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Boil water in a medium pot. Add the asparagus pieces and turn down the heat so the water is at a low boil. Blanch the asparagus for about 3 minutes. It should turn bright green.
  • Meanwhile, add the butter to a small pan over medium heat. When the butter is melted, add the chopped onion and sauté for 4-5 minutes.
  • When the asparagus is done, drain the water from the pot and add the asparagus pieces to the pan with the onions. Toss to coat with butter. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for just for 30 seconds. Remove from heat.
  • Combine the asparagus mixture with ¼ of the vegetable stock in a blender. Blend until smooth. Transfer back to the medium pot.
  • Add the remaining chicken stock
  • Next, add the sautéed veggies to your blender. Add 4 oz vegetable stock to the blender as well. This will help the asparagus to blend into a smooth paste. It's okay if the chicken stock is cold. It doesn't need to be warm.
  • Add the remaining vegetable stock. Stir well and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Add the cream and stir. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Notes

  • You can substitute vegetable stock with chicken stock.
  • Don’t add the cream to the soup while it’s bubbling hot, to avoid breaking the cream.
