The Health Benefits of Asparagus Soup

Have you ever wondered what are the health benefits of Asparagus soup or asked yourself how do I make asparagus soup from scratch. 

Well Asparagus is a fantastic source of fiber, folate, vitamins A, C, E and K. The Asparagus vegetable also contains chromium and potassium which is great for blood sugar levels.

There are plenty of antioxidants in Asparagus which is good for keeping your skin healthy and eliminating free-radicals from the body. 

Asparagus Soup is also a bariatric friendly recipe and perfect for someone interested in bariatric cream soup recipes. It’s also a great pureed soup recipe for the elderly and tastes so good. 

Can I Freeze Cream Of Asparagus Soup? 

The answer to this question is yes, yes and yes! If you want to know how to freeze Asparagus Soup, it’s super easy!  

You will need to allow your soup to cool down before placing it into freezer bags or an airtight container. 

Don’t forget to label your soup for future reference. This is a fantastic recipe if you’re wanting to make a large batch of soup or if you’re interested in making enough soup to last a few meals. 

To prevent cream-based soups from curdling you will need to stir well when reheating your frozen soup.

How Long Can You Keep Asparagus Soup In The Fridge?

If you’re not interested in freezing your soup then you can store it in the fridge for up to five days. You can serve this easy soup recipe hot or chilled. It really is very versatile and can make a delicious chilled soup. 

What Herbs Go With Asparagus Soup? 

We will add salt, pepper and garlic to our asparagus soup Instant Pot recipe as well as a bay leave. Bay leaves are fragrant leafs from the laurel tree and are great herbs to use with this type of soup as it helps to bring out the flavour and make it a little stronger.

What To Serve With Asparagus Soup?

I really like to eat creamy soup with a fresh bread roll or croutons. You might like to add a crusty baguette, or if you’re looking to add some protein, Asparagus soup can go really well with a poached egg or grilled salmon. The options are endless.

Stir to get any pieces of garlic, onion or asparagus that may be stuck on the bottom, and then secure the lid.

Set the Instant Pot to the Soup/Stew setting for 15 minutes.

I prefer to use the natural release, but you can quick release if you are under a time crunch.

Remove the bay leaf.

Carefully transfer the soup mixture to a good quality immersion blender to puree, make sure it has a nice creamy texture.
