Tasty, Quick, Asparagus Soup
Here is a good one for you, this soup takes around 20 minutes to make, is healthy and super tasty. Just how I like my recipes, quick, clean and damn good. Whip this up quickly after a busy work day or impress your guests with a fancy (but easy) appetizer.
Yes, asparagus may make your pee smell, but they sure come packed with a healthy punch. These green stalks are full of antioxidants, which help fight free radicals in the body. Asparagus are a good source of folate, fiber, vitamin E, K, A & C. Plus, they contain chromium, helping insulin transport glucose from the bloodstream and to your cells, creating energy.
1 bundle asparagus, ends cut off, and diced
1 white onion, chopped
2 cups veggie or chicken stock
2 cups water
1 tablespoon turmeric 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 lemon, juiced
1 small scoop unrefined coconut oil (for cooking)
1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked for around 1 hour
1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
1/4 cup (per serving) cooked brown rice
Salt & Pepper to taste
1. In fry pan, over medium heat, coat pan with coconut oil. Add onion and cook for around 5 minutes or until tender. Then add asparagus, stock, turmeric, mint & thyme, stir well, cover and cook for another 5 minutes or until asparagus are done.
2. Here you can use either an immersion blender or high-powered blender. If using immersion blender, add all ingredients (being sure to drain your cashews and leave cooked brown rice out) to a large pot and blend until smooth. Then heat to desired temperature.
If using high-powered blender, add all ingredients (except for cooked brown rice) to blender, blend on high until smooth. Then moving blended mixture to a pot and heat to desired temperature.
