Asparagus Soup with Spinach

This easy creamy soup made with asparagus, sweet potatoes, avocado, and spinach is a perfect nutritious dish for the summer. Served with compliant bread, it is filling enough to be your main course.  

The sautéed asparagus heads on ghee or oil will take care of the delicious taste, and also giving you something to bite into. 

The first step is to cut off the hard parts from the asparagus, then cut off the heads and set them aside. Then cut the remaining part of the asparagus into approximately 1/2″ pieces and sauté them together with diced onion on a little bit of avocado oil. 

While the asparagus with onion are cooking, you peel and cut the sweet potato into small pieces. Then you add the potatoes to the pot with asparagus and onion, pour bone broth, vegetable broth or water over it, and bring to a boil. When the potatoes are soft, turn the heat off and add a very soft avocado, and spinach, leaving a few leaves on the side for decorating. Stir until the spinach is wilted. Using an immersion blender, mix everything into a creamy soup, and season with salt and pepper.

Lastly, sauté the asparagus heads on ghee or oil. Serve the soup into bowls decorated with asparagus heads, remaining spinach, and a little bit of grated red beet for color.
