Fresh Asparagus Soup Recipe

Photographer: Tomi Fumimoto
A smooth, creamy and elegant soup that's sure to warm you up during the winter months and easy to create.

The original recipe called for the use of chicken stock; however we wanted to create a vegetarian soup so used vegetable stock...substitute as you wish. Another variation is to use soy milk in place of the heavy cream.

Fresh Asparagus Soup 

2 bunches asparagus
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 minced shallot
1 quart vegetable stock
1/2 cup heavy cream
cayenne pepper
sea salt


  • Wash and trim asparagus. 
  • Slice asparagus into 1-inch pieces. 
  • Melt butter in a stock pot. When butter is just melted, add shallot and sauté for one minute.
  • Add vegetable stock and asparagus to pot. 
  • Simmer for 5 minutes, or until the asparagus is tender (and still bright green).
  • *Using an immersion blender, blend mixture until all asparagus is pureed. 
  • Swirl in the cream and simmer until heated. 
  • Season to taste with sea salt and tiny pinch of cayenne pepper.
*If you don't have an immersion blender (i.e. stick blender) then ladle the asparagus mixture into your blender and pulse until all asparagus is pureed. Spoon mixture back into stock pot.
