40-60 asparagus ends
1 TBS avocado oil
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 medium red potatoes, chopped
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup cream
salt and pepper

1/4 cup grated parmesan, optional
2 oz prosciutto, sliced and fried (optional)
12-18 roasted asparagus spears, optional
lemon zest


1️⃣ put the asparagus ends in a big pot and fill with water to cover one inch above the asparagus.

2️⃣ Bring to a boil and simmer 30-40 minutes until asparagus is very soft (it will still be quite fibrous though).

3️⃣ Blend the asparagus and liquid it boiled in using an immersion blender (In a regular blender, you must blend in very small batches as hot liquids expand. Or let it cool first).

4️⃣ Strain the pulp out, reserving the liquid.

5️⃣ Heat the oil in the big pot and add the onion and potatoes. Heat on medium high, stirring for 10 minutes until there are some excellent golden brown marks on the vegetables.

6️⃣ Add the reserved asparagus stock and simmer on medium low for 20-30 minutes until vegetables are very soft. Blend well.

7️⃣ Add juice of the 1/2 lemon, cream and salt and pepper to taste.

8️⃣ (Optional: garnish the bowls of soup with grated parmesan, fried prosciutto, roasted asparagus spears and/or zest of the 1/2 lemon)
