Hearty Creamy Asparagus Soup

May 19, 2018

My two little girls never wanted to take Asparagus, until I make it into this creamy and yummy soup. This is a great way to feed them a whole load of vegetables without a big fuss 🙂 It is a fantastically simple asparagus soup, pureéd till it’s silky smooth, deliciously taken hot.

I adopted this recipe from Thermomix The Basic Cookbook, but I will share with you how you can prepare this on your stove.

Ingredients:

  • 400g asparagus, woody part discarded, cut into pieces (4cm)
  • 50g onion, peeled and quartered
  • 1 stick celery, cut into pieces
  • 100g potatoes, cut into small pieces
  • 20 g olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1-2 tsp Himalayan Rock Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 50g spreadable cheese
  • 80 g milk
  • 700 g water

 

How to:

  1. In a large saucepan, combine asparagus, chopped onion, celery, potatoes and 100g water. Cover, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat, and simmer uncovered until vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Process the mixture in a blender to puree the vegetables. Set aside.
  2. In the same saucepan, heat up the olive oil over medium-low heat. Stir in the garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly for 2 minutes. Add in the remaining water, and increase the heat to medium. Cook, stirring constantly until the mixture boils. Stir in the asparagus puree, spreadable cheese and milk.
  3. Serve immediately.
