Delicious creamy soup with spring vegetables
The spring is here and it is time to tend to our gardens. We started fix our garden this weekend, by cutting off all the weeds, and renewing the vegetable bed with fresh garden soil. We put seeds in vegetable beds and some seeds of flowering plants in pots. Now our wait begins, last year few vegetables didn’t want to grow. We will see how it goes this year. In the rest of the yard there not much space left, as it has curry leaves plant, orange, lemon, neem and oleander trees. Gardening is indeed lots of work, but satisfying when you see the trees bloom. Last week shopping I bought a bunch of asparagus from Wal-Mart, and decided to try this delicious cream of asparagus and spinach soup.
I have tried stir-fry with asparagus earlier. And I have seen recipes of spicy pickled asparagus, but did not want to try the pickles as I have not been successful with putting together a good pickle. So next in line was to try either soup or oven roasted asparagus. Then I thought if it is soup, my hubby will love it, so decided to try it. I want to make it little healthier so added a bunch of spinach also. I used heavy cream and butter sauté if you want you can make it vegan by substituting with coconut oil and coconut milk.
I have mentioned the health benefits of Asparagus in this post. If you have bunch of asparagus and spinach try this one. If you don’t want to add spinach you can add green peas. That makes soup delicious too.
Indeed fun to welcome spring with bright green color soup. Here is my recipe of cream of asparagus and spinach soup.
