Vegan Asparagus Soup is a fresh and easy way to take advantage of your local farm fresh produce. The season is short so make the most of it! Make a double batch because it freezes easily and you can savor it throughout the summer.
You’re going to love the deep flavors in this vegan soup! Using potatoes, celery and garlic along with oregano, basil and pepper allows the earthy, salty flavors of asparagus to shine.
We now have Pick Your Own Asparagus at the farm! The kids love the wagon rides and learning about our healthy foods that grow from the earth.
3 Reasons Vegan Asparagus Soup Should Be On Your Menu:
- Asparagus is a nutrient-packed vegetable. It is a very good source of fiber, folate, vitamins A, C, E and K, as well as chromium, a trace mineral that enhances the ability of insulin to transport glucose from the bloodstream into cells. That’s good news if you’re watching your blood sugar.
- This herbaceous plant—along with avocado, kale and Brussels sprouts—is a particularly rich source of glutathione, a detoxifying compound that helps break down carcinogens and other harmful compounds like free radicals.
- It’s one of the top ranked fruits and vegetables for its ability to neutralize cell-damaging free radicals. This may help slow the aging process and reduce inflammation.
