Spring time is the best season for this nutritious vegetable!

You’ll see that I truly do enjoy using Asparagus in my meals. Asparagus is in season in the spring and this soup is delicious as the nights are just a little chilly.

In California, the weather doesn’t get really COLD, but the nights can have a little nip in the air and on those days I really think that soup hits the spot. Asparagus is nutrient filled with lots of fiber, vitamins and folate – it’s very good for you!

This soup is very smooth and tasty, I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
