Creamy Asparagus Soup

Creamy Asparagus Soup Recipe

Creamy, dreamy asparagus soup. This soup is amazing, and so creamy, but not loaded with calories. It’s a perfect late winter or spring time soup. As soon as asparagus is in season in your area you should really try it. That is if you like asparagus, of course. It’s made with yogurt, a hint of lemon and thyme.

I paired this soup with a simple panini for dinner. It was also perfect by itself for a light lunch the next day.

This soup was also featured on, along with 1 more amazing soup recipe I will be sharing very soon!
