Creamy Asparagus Soup

On these chilly days, nothing is better than a quick and warm meal! This soup is very easy to make, and doesn't take very long at all. Just serve it with some warm biscuits, crackers, or a fresh bun for a fast and delicious meal!

This recipe makes about 6 servings of soup, I often halve it since there are only two of us enjoying it.  The original recipe is from

Creamy Asparagus Soup

  • 2 pounds (2 bundles) of asparagus 
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 large onion, diced (or a whole medium or small onion, diced)
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Wash the asparagus and snap off the tough ends.  Cut the asparagus into 1" long pieces
  2. Add the olive oil and onion to a large pot, and saute the onions until soft
  3. Add the chicken broth and asparagus, then bring to a boil
  4. Simmer for about 20 minutes, or until the asparagus is tender
  5. Add the sour cream, and stir to combine
  6. Blend the soup in a blender, or use an immersion blender if you have one
    1. Please note that you do not want to fill your blender more than 1/3 of the way with the hot soup when blending! Blending the soup in batches doesn't take very long, and is much safer :)
  7. Season to taste with salt and pepper
  8. Enjoy!
