Cream of Asparagus Soup (vegan)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Carol Bullock

A creamy, yet low-fat soup. I have substituted all kinds of vegetables for the asparagus when making this - including broccoli, cauliflower and potato.

Okay I did something a little weird with this. I needed a dairy free replacement for the canned cream of whatever soup. So I left out the asparagus and half of the liquids (broth and milk) so that it would act like condensed soup. It was really great! I'll be using this every time I need the cream soups. Thanks so much Carol!
