Extra Easy Healthy Cream of Asparagus Soup

Extra Easy Healthy Cream of Asparagus Soup created by That Napa Chicken R

I am quickly becoming addicted to this easy to throw together soup. The flavor of the asparagus is carefully balanced so it doesn't take over. The potatoes add body and a creamy texture, so no real cream is necessary! We grow everything (but the sour cream) right here on the ranch so it is super economical- but still inexpensive if you need to buy the ingredients!

directions

  • Throw everything except the sour cream and chives into a sauce pot.
  • Cover with water if necessary and cook over medium heat for about 30 minutes until the asparagus and potatoes are fork tender.
  • Ladle the mixture into your blender- I do it in several batches to be safe.
  • Reheat in the microwave as needed and top with sour cream and chives or whatever is in your pantry!

    I made this soup last evening and it is delicious! Easy and quick which is great and healthy to boot! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    I loved how simple and quick this soup was to prepare. I would leave the thyme out next time. I used fresh and it kind of overwhelmed the other ingredients. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    OMG - this was delicious. I did alter it a bit but also had a "hot sauce" accident so it came out rather spicy. I added 2 cloves of garlic and extra chicken stock. I also cooked the asparagus tips separately and didn't put them through the blender, just added them to the blended soup.

    This turned out quite easy and delicious for us! I used dry thyme and left out sour cream and chives. It made so much I froze the rest in 2 person batches for later on. Thanks!

    This was simple, simple, simple to make, and so healthy too. I didn't have Thyme at home, but it didn't seem to matter. This is a great starter for a dinner. <br/><br/>The soup is hearty, if you want it comes out medium-thick, if you want it thicker, put in some broccoli or add more asparagus. Highly recommend, it's simple and healthy!
