I found this huge organic asparagus at the farmer’s market today which makes the perfect summer soup. The cashews make this Dairy-free Creamy Asparagus Soup thick and creamy without heavy cream! You can skip though, for a nut-free version.
This is my go-to recipe for any simple creamed vegetable soup. You can swap out the asparagus for any vegetable you like such as zucchini, broccoli, or even a combination like cauliflower and asparagus, or carrot.
Dairy-free Creamy Asparagus Soup
Heat ghee or oil in a large pot over medium-low heat. Add onions and sprinkle with a dash of salt. Saute until softened, 3-5 minutes.
Add asparagus and stock. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 20 minutes. Add drained cashews and puree with an immersion blender or in your high-speed blender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
