Asparagus & Garlic Soup

Updated: Jul 14, 2020


I moved to Wisconsin in the spring of 2014. It was so beautiful. I remember seeing more trees than cars...flowers with colors I didn't know existed. Then the summer came and I felt like I was back home, in Puerto Rico, with the sun scorching me and sweat dripping down my forehead; it was all sun dresses and bolero hats. Fall came in as the leaves of the trees turned to all sorts of beautiful orange tones. I bought my first sweater and scarf; such a wonderful time for fashion!


Winter came and it was a different story.


I love winter during December. Anything past that, I am miserable. It is cold, the roads as a mess, the fast winds slap you harder than a Latino mother when you misbehave. I am forced to wear a minimum of 3 layers to leave my apartment but, once I get wherever it is I am going, I have to take those layers off because the heaters are always cranked up to max. After 3 years, you would assume I would get used to it but, no. I have just found coping mechanisms.


I have always loved soups but I never made them much because it was always too hot (and I don't mess around with cold soups). In the winter, however, I can make as many variations as I want.

 

Ingredients:

400 g asparagus spears

10 g (2 tsp) garlic

10 mL (2 tsp) olive oil

480 mL (2 cups) unsweetened cashew milk

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

pinch of nutmeg


Directions:

  1. In a pot, add olive oil, garlic, and asparagus. Cook at medium heat until tender.

  2. Add the milk, salt, pepper, and pinch of nutmeg. Bring to a boil for 5 minutes.

  3. Turn off the heat. Once cooled slightly, blend with immersion blender or regular blender until completely smooth.

  4. Simmer (return to pot if using a regular blender) at low temperature until it has reached the desired consistency. Taste and adjust salt if needed.
