Dreamy, Creamy Asparagus Soup

The first time I had this soup I refused to believe it was dairy-free. I was at a friend’s house and she was introducing me to Dr. Fuhrman’s Eat to Live plan. The creamy texture and sweet, velvety notes in this dish are, well… I still don’t believe it.

~ recipe by Dr. Fuhrman

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, chopped
  • 2 TBS Dr. Fuhrman’s VegiZest (or other no-salt seasoning blend, adjusted to taste)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 TBS Bragg Liquid Aminos
  • 1 cup unsweetened soy, almond or hemp milk
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 4 pitted dates
  • chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish

Directions:

  1. Simmer asparagus, VegiZest, water, and aminos in a soup pot until asparagus is tender. 
  2. Blend in a high-powered blender, with soy milk, cashews, and dates until smooth. 
  3. Garnish with cilantro before serving (I used chives).

Serves 4. So simple. So divine. Enjoy!

Healthy Trails,

  1. Helyn, I just made this soup and let me just say, I was doing my taste test of a spoon full before my husband gets home and I literally said out loud "Oh My God!" and Helyn I never even say or use that phrase. Seriously this is the BEST recipe I have ever tasted with the main ingredient of Asparagus – Thank you for sharing this recipe I have Dr. Fuhrmans book too and totally missed this one!

    WOW! Thanks so much for the feedback! Yes, it's one of our favorite recipes, too. One of Fuhrman's best. Haha! You made me laugh with your" Oh my God!" comment! :))

    Helyn, I added a red onion and shiitake mushrooms and left the mushrooms unblended. It was great. Also used light coconut milk in place of the soy. Company worthy!
