Recipe Ingredients for Asparagus Soup

2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
4 tbsp lemon juice
3 medium red potatoes, diced, peeled
3 cups vegetable broth or reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup sour cream
1 cup lite coconut milk
2 cups asparagus (about 1 bunch)
1 Freshly ground pepper to taste
1/4 cup finely chopped scallion greens or fresh chives

Recipe Directions for Asparagus Soup

  1. Melt butter and oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring often, until golden, about 5 minutes. Stir in curry powder, ginger, lemon zest and potatoes and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Stir in broth, coconut milk and asparagus. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, partially cover and continue to cook until the potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.

  2. Puree the soup with an immersion blender or a regular blender (in batches) until smooth. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids.) Season with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper.

  3. Whisk crème fraîche (or sour cream), lemon juice and scallion greens (or chives) in a small bowl and garnish with a swirl of it.
