Why I Love Asparagus Soup

This creamy asparagus soup not only celebrates one of the season’s best, most prized vegetables, but it does so in a healthy and comforting way that suits my March mood.

  • On the one hand, I’m ready to shed the winter burden and crave something lighter (like this pea salad). Greek yogurt does the trick by making the soup creamier without adding extra fat or calories.
  • Meanwhile, it’s still chilly outside, so you need a comfort food (hello, potato-leek soup) to warm you up and protect you from winter’s dregs.

This asparagus soup recipe is the perfect balance for my body crave needs From early March to April…or as long as you can eat asparagus in season.

This is the secret to the most decadent tasting cream of asparagus soup that is surprisingly low in calories.

  • My other trick for making this a creamy soup without cream is greek yogurtEver since I first tried Greek yogurt in this Roasted Carrot Soup, I’ve been an avid fan of adding Greek yogurt to my vegetable soup.


  • asparagusIt’s packed with essential nutrients like folate and vitamins A, C, and K, as well as fiber, so it’s no wonder we have a large collection of asparagus recipes in our library.


Cut off an inch or so below the spears of your asparagus. The soup may become streaky and the puree may not flow smoothly.

  • greek yogurtIt’s a healthy asparagus soup that doesn’t have fresh cream, half & half, or sour cream. Instead, just a few drops of protein-rich, low-fat Greek yogurt.

Ingredient note

Do not use fat-free Greek yogurt. A pinch of fat is needed to ensure that the yogurt melts smoothly into the soup and does not harden too quickly when added to hot soup.

Be hopeful. Asparagus (and spring!) is almost here.

When they arrive, I’ll have a nice recipe for an easy and healthy cream of asparagus soup.


Why is asparagus soup bland?

A bland soup is always a disappointment. If the soup feels a little lacking, add extra fat (such as bacon, butter, or coconut milk), acidity (such as lemon juice or balsamic vinegar), or salt to enhance the flavor. A sprinkle of fresh herbs or parmesan cheese is another great flavor booster.

Is asparagus soup gluten free?

yes! As written, this asparagus soup is gluten-free.

Can you make asparagus soup with frozen asparagus?

I’ve never made this soup with frozen asparagus, so it’s an experiment. I have a feeling it will work, so please let me know how it goes if you give it a try.

Should asparagus be soaked before cooking?

it depends. Asparagus is often soaked in water to remove any dirt or sand left on the stems. If you think your asparagus could use an extra bath, feel free to soak it before cooking.
