Cream of Roasted Asparagus Soup

You’re not going to believe that this smooth and creamy cream of roasted asparagus soup is made in the Vitamix. It only takes a few simple ingredients and barely any time to get dinner on the table. It’s really that easy!

There is something so comforting about a big bowl of soup. 

It’s even more comforting when I know I can make it quickly and simply. That is where this creamy of roasted asparagus soup comes in to play. Plus, it turns out so silky smooth thanks to my Vitamix

You know I have raved about my Vitamix for years and I still stand strongly beside this beast. Especially for soup making. The motor is literally so strong that it keeps the soup warm. If you’re sitting there thinking “yeah, no blender is that strong.” You need to check out my Vitamix hot chocolate post. Not only do I show you how well the motor works (cold ingredients magically turned into the best hot chocolate you have ever had) but it’s one hell of a great recipe. 

Plus the video was fun to make.

What do I need to make creamy of roasted asparagus soup?

Now, back to this soup. 

I think the roasting of the asparagus is KEY to this soup. It brings a deep flavor that would be lost if we opted to just steam the asparagus. Which, of course, is an option if you don’t own an oven or just don’t want to turn it on. 

Other than roasting I kept the recipe really simple. It doesn’t mean you can’t adapt or add more flavor if you want. I’ll add some ideas further down. 

But, for basics all you’ll need are: 

  • asparagus 
  • Kosher salt and pepper 
  • vegetable stock
  • half and half 

That’s it. Super easy!

Can I adapt this recipe?

Sure! Obviously any adaptations will change the taste but I have a few tasty ideas to help your creative juices start to flow. 

  • Vegan 
    • Use almond milk instead of heavy cream. I have done this before and I LOVED it! I think coconut milk would work too. 
  • Deeper flavors
    • Add in some roasted garlic, red crushed pepper, or even roasted shallots. 
  • Fresh flavors
    • While blending add in fresh dill or chives.

Ok, so now that you see how easy it is to make this soup you need to go make it asap. 

For real. Not even kidding. 

It’s a necessary part of your weekend.

Cream of Roasted Asparagus Soup

Yield: 4-1/2 cups
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 1-1/2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Sour cream, for topping, optional
  • Minced fresh dill, for topping, optional

Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
    2. Add asparagus to a high sided sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil and season with kosher salt and pepper.
    3. Roast until the stalks are soft but not mushy, about 12 minutes.
    4. Add asparagus stalks to a high powered blender and pour in vegetable stock. Start on the lowest speed and work your way up to the top speed. Blend until smooth and hot, about 6 minutes.
    5. Lower speed and add in heavy cream.
    6. Blend for 30 seconds just to help incorporate the dairy.
    7. Serve warm.

Notes

You can use chicken stock for a richer flavor.

Almond milk or half and half can be used in place of heavy cream.

I used a Vitamix high-speed blender which will keep the soup hot while blending. If you do not own a high-speed blender puree the soup and re-heat in a soup pot.

    Asparagus is by far my most favorite part of spring! I happen to have 1/2 a carton of half and half left over from Easter brunch and of course my produce drawer is stocked with asparagus right now sooooo this is happening. ps- I feel the same way about my vitamix. It’s ok. there’s probably a support group we can join or something..

    I don’t own a Vitamix but I do feel similarly about my high speed blender! There have been lots of purees, soups and smoothies these days.

    Is that a pound and a half of asparagus BEFORE trimming or AFTER trimming? Thanks!

    • nutmegnanny replied: — February 25th, 2015 @ 9:22 pm

      Hi Sarah! It’s before trimming but trimming shouldn’t take too much weight off the total 🙂

    Thanks so much! I easily Veganized this recipe, it’s so yummy! I did 1 bunch asparagus, 1/2 Cup soaked cashews, 1/2 Cup coconut milk, 1.5 cups veggie broth (better than bouillon), salt & pepper. Love it!
