Vegan Asparagus Soup

This easy and quick recipe will give you some delicious vegan asparagus soup, with the delicious asparagus tips still in the soup. This is a great way to enjoy asparagus and can be eaten as a starter or main course or as a healthy snack at any time during the day.

But be aware, if you are making it as a starter, despite the low calories, it is quite satisfying.

Cream of Asparagus Soup

This recipe as written below is a totally non-dairy vegan asparagus soup. But of course, if you just wanted to make a vegetarian cream of asparagus soup, you could always add some cream to the soup at the end of the instructions. Alternatively, you could try adding some coconut milk to keep it vegan and make it creamier.

But really, personally, I do not think it needs it – the asparagus itself has a very delicate flavour which makes the soup creamy and delicious.

Vegan Soup Recipes

This, I find, is really one of the beauties of making soup recipes. You can design them to meet your own dietary requirements without too many changes in the recipe or process.

I have a few other soup recipes on my site like my cauliflower and broccoli soup, vegetarian French onion soupcream of mushroom soup and a healthy tomato soup. Some of these recipes are vegan or can be made vegan with just a few small tweaks to the recipe. 

For example, in the tomato soup recipe, I create a creamy tomato soup effect by using some basmati rice in the ingredients to change the consistency.

Health Benefits of Asparagus

Asparagus contains many nutrients (fibre) and vitamins (A,C and K) and is a great vegetable to eat as part of a healthy balanced diet. As it is relatively low on calories it can be a useful part of a weight loss diet, and this soup could be a perfect meal to include in such a diet.

Asparagus also contributes to keeping a healthy digestive system by feeding friendly bacteria in the gut.

Vegan Asparagus Soup

vegan asparagus soup

This delicious vegan asparagus soup recipe is easy to make, low in calories and yet very nourishing and filling.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 shallot, sliced
  • 1 celery stalk, cleaned and chopped (about 70g)
  • 320 g asparagus (I used 2 bunches of green asparagus)
  • 1 leek, cleaned and sliced
  • 1000ml vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Prepare the vegetables. For the asparagus, remove the stalk ends and discard them. Then remove the tips from the stalks and retain both.
  2. Heat the oil over medium heat in a saucepan. Then fry the shallot, celery, and leek for about 5 minutes in the pan, stirring constantly.
  3. Then add the asparagus stalks and the vegetable stock and bring to a simmer. Cover the pan and simmer on low heat for about 20 minutes, checking the stock level now and again, and topping up with water if necessary.
  4. After 20 minutes remove from the heat and blend everything using an immersion blender in the pan.
  5. Then add the asparagus tips and simmer for another 5 minutes or until the tips are cooked through and softened.
  6. Finally taste the soup and add salt to taste, bit by bit and stirring as you do it, to ensure you do not overdo it.

Notes

Serve up with some bread, croutons or toast.

[Note: If you are not worried about it being a vegan recipe you could add some cream at the end to make a cream of asparagus soup.]
