Prep Time 5minutes
Cook Time 20minutes
1/4cupcheeseblue cheese is my favorite
3cupschicken or vegetable broth
1Tbspsour cream (optional)
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Wash and dry asparagus and cut off a generous amount of the dry ends. Cut the tips of about half the asparagus for decoration later. Then place on a baking sheet, drizzle with a little avocado oil, sprinkle with sea salt and pepper, and massage oil and seasoning into asparagus. Keep the cut-off tips separate from the spears on the same baking sheet.
Roast asparagus for 12-15 minutes depending on its thickness. You want it to be softened but still bright green.
In the meantime, preheat a large pot over medium heat and peel and chop the onion and garlic.
Add a drizzle of avocado oil to your pot and sauté the onion and garlic until starting to brown.
Now, either add broth, cheese, lemon juice, and roasted asparagus (without cut-off tips) to the pot and use an immersion blender to blend until smooth OR add everything to a regular blender, blend until smooth and return to the pot.
Serve soup in a bowl, add a teaspoon of sour cream if desired, top with asparagus tips and freshly cracked black pepper.
