Cream of Asparagus Soup

Cream of Asparagus Soup

This cream of asparagus soup is dairy-free and gluten-free. It is delicious and simple to make. A creamy soup that is vegan is not so common and that makes this soup extra special.
If you enjoy soup and asparagus then this is a very good recipe for you to try. I love it. The soup is filled with nutritious superfoods too so you will get lots of health benefits while enjoying it.
Asparagus with its high fiber content, and low glycemic index is considered a smart carb. It is on the Environmental Working Group’s Clean 15 list of fruits and vegetables with the lowest occurrence of pesticides as it naturally grows so quickly the need for pesticides is reduced.
