Asparagus is great as a side but here is a new way of eating it, as a soup

Today I’m making an Asparagus Soup with lemon, because I like vegetable soups and I really like asparagus. I think you will enjoy this dish too!

Watch How to Make It

This Asparagus soup can energize you in the middle of the day after a stressing morning at work or on any cold season day, especially if it’s raining.

Here is the written recipe, with the ingredients and step by step instructions:

Asparagus Soup with Lemon

Servings 6 people

Equipment

  • Sharp knife
  • Chopping board
  • Hand Blender
  • Boiling Pot
  • Pan

Ingredients

  • 2 bundles asparagus
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 onions (big)
  • 1 potato (big)
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 4 cups vegetable stock (or 1 liter)
  • chopped parsley (or coriander, for plating)
  • bread for Croutons

Instructions

The Croutons

  • Slice the bread in cubes
  • Put it in a preheated pan with olive oil, at medium heat
  • Cook until they turn golden brown
  • Set aside

The Soup

  • Cut the asparagus in little pieces, until you get to the woody bottom part. That would be about 3 quarters of the asparagus. Throw away the hard part.
  • Peel the potato and cut it in small cubes, so it will boil faster.
  • Chop the onion
    Chopping onions
  • Take the onion and put it in a preheated pot. Let it sweat for 5-7 minutes at low heat.
  • Add the crushed garlic, or chop it if you prefer, and let it cook with the onion for 30 seconds
  • Add the asparagus and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the potatoes, the vegetable stock and a teaspoon of salt. We let this cook for 20 minutes at medium heat
  • Season with the juice of half a lemon and some black pepper.
  • Use a hand blender to mix all this until you get a silky smooth texture
  • Let this cook for another 2-3 minutes
  • For plating, I like to use a nice bowl and add some parsley, croutons and black pepper over the soup. I also have some lemon wedges aside, in case it needs more lemon.
