Creamy (vegan) Asparagus Soup
Level: Easy
What is more spring than Asparagus and more gorgeous than a big bowl of green? This "Creamy" asparagus soup is totally vegan and is lovely served warm or chilled. The "creamy" comes from a sneaky blend of avocado and the amazing vibrant green is from big handfuls of spinach tossed into the blender.
