Asparagus soup is very easy to prepare and it’s so tasty. I really like to pre-bake the asparagus in the oven because it makes the soup more delicious, but if you don’t want it, you can skip this step and cook it all together a bit longer to make the asparagus really soft. You can also roast the asparagus in a pan to get a little color and thus more flavor, and then cook them with the other ingredients.

The soup is vegan, it comes out creamy, if you think it’s too thick, you can add a little more water.

I served the asparagus soup with sour cream, chopped chives and crispy bacon, which I sliced ​​and cooked in a pan until browned. You can also serve this asparagus soup with other toppings as desired.
