EARTH ANGEL VEGANS CASHEW CREAM OF ASPARAGUS SOUP is one of the best soups i ever tasted! It is really that good and not too hard to make. You do need a good blender and I have a *Vitamix so that worked out well. It was rich and creamy and so incredibly flavorful. A perfect all season soup that would be delightful for brunch, lunch or dinner! Give it a try! In the picture it is paired with the french chickpea salad for an amazing lunch.
2 CARTONS OF OIL FREE VEGETABLE BROTH
2 BUNCHES OF FRESH ASPARAGUS
2 TABLESPOONS OF WILDTREE ABSOLUTELY ONION SEASONING MIX
1 CUP PLANT MILK
2 LEVEL TABLESPOONS CORNSTARCH
1/2 CUP RAW CASHEWS
BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOU MUST SOAK THE RAW CASHEWS IN WARM 1 CUP WATER FOR AT LEAST 1 HOUR.
ROUGH CHOP THE ASPARAGUS AND PUT IT IN A HEAVY BOTTOM SOUP POT WITH THE BROTH AND SEASONING AND BRING TO A BOIL. LOWER TO A SIMMER AND COOK UNTIL THE ASPARAGUS IS VERY TENDER ABOUT 45 MINUTES
AFTER THE ASPARAGUS IS VERY SOFT ADD IT TO YOUR BLENDER AND BLEND UNTIL SMOOTH. THIS MIGHT HAVE TO BE DONE IN BATCHES AND BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO GET BURNED ON THE STEAM. WHEN THE BROTH AND ASPARAGUS ARE A PUREE RETURN THEM TO THE SOUP POT
NOW IT IS TIME TO DRAIN THE CASHEWS. ADD THE DRAINED CASHEWS TO THE BLENDER WITH THE PLANT MILK AND CORN STARCH. BLEND THIS FOR AT LEAST ONE MINUTE UNTIL SMOOTH AND CREAMY.
ADD THE CREAMY CASHEW MIXTURE TO THE BLENDED ASPARAGUS AND BRING TO A GENTLE BOIL FOR 1 MINUTE. TASTE FOR SEASONING AND ADD SALT AND WHITE PEPPER TO TASTE!
ENJOY YOUR SOUP WITH A DELICIOUS SALAD AND CRUSTY BREAD OR A ROLL…
