Sweet Spring Asparagus Soup

I just made this recipe up today and it was the most delicious spring asparagus soup I’ve ever had. And it’s so easy to make!

I sautéed one onion in 3 Tbsps. of olive oil, roasted 2 lbs. of asparagus covered in olive oil and salt and one Japanese sweet potato, then I added the sautéed onions, asparagus, sweet potato, 2 cups of Vegetable stock into my Vitamix and pureed.

I also sliced and roasted a second Japanese sweet potato. I used the sweet potato chips to make croutons for the soup. YUMMY!

I can’t even tell you how creamy and delicious this vegan soup is!  You have to try it. The sweet potato added just a bit of sweetness to contrast the salt and the onions. You might even add a squeeze of lemon when you serve it. Yummy and perfect way to start to move out of the heavy winter soups into the lighter tastes of spring.  And it is a beautiful green color as well.
