Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 2 cups peeled and chopped turnip
  • 5 cups chopped fresh asparagus
  • 6 cups water (or substitute vegetable broth or coconut milk)
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Add the extra virgin olive oil and onions to a large pot and sauté until the onions are tender.
  • Add the turnip, asparagus, and water and cook on low-medium heat, covered, until the vegetables are tender (approximately 25 minutes).
  • At this point you can remove a few asparagus tips from the pot and reserve them to use as a garnish if you wish.
  • Add the nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper.
  • Use an immersion blender to purée the soup to a smooth consistency (or transfer the soup to a blender and blend until smooth).
  • Serve hot.
  • Makes about 8 servings of vegan cream of asparagus soup.

Notes

  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days.
