Asparagus and spinach soup
I make a lot of soup here at home. This time, I decided to go for a beautiful green asparagus and spinach soup. Enjoy!
- 1 asparagus bundle
- 5 oz (around 150 g) fresh spinach
- 4 cups (around 1 liter) water
- vegetable stock
- 3/4 cups (around 2 dl) cream
- herbal salt
Asparagus and spinach go really well together and this delicious soup tastes great both hot and cold. I rarely use a specific recipe when I make soup. It's so easy to just make it with whatever you happen to have at home. This is my suggestion for a delicious asparagus and spinach soup that you can adapt to what you have available in your kitchen.
Cut the asparagus into smaller pieces. Remove the hard woody asparagus ends.
Finely chop garlic.
Sear asparagus and garlic in a little butter, add water and stock. Save a few asparagus stalks for garnish.
Boil until the asparagus is almost completely soft.
Add cream and spinach, cook for a few minutes until the spinach softens too.
Blend the soup and season with salt and pepper.
Serve the asparagus and spinach soup with some nice bread and garnish with pan-fried asparagus and roasted sunflower seeds.
