Super Easy Bacon Asparagus Soup

Member Rating

By James Geneau

It is spring and that means Asparagus is in season!  When the weather forecast is calling for showers, nothing beats a good soup while curling up with a book or a movie.  One of my favorites is this super easy Bacon Asparagus Soup!
 
Ingredients:

2-3 Bunches of fresh Asparagus
Roughly 10-15 strips of thick-cut bacon cut into 1 inch pieces
Olive Oil
Half an Onion, Diced
Salt & Pepper freshly cracked of course!
Water

In a big pot, add some olive oil and throw in your bacon.  Sautee these until delicious and crisp.  Add your onions and let them soften.  Meanwhile, cut some Asparagus up and boil some in a separate pot - just enough so they soften but don’t lose their flavor.  Strain, then add them to the bacon and onions and sautee some more.  Add about a cup of water to the pot and then turn off the heat.

Grab your blender and transfer everything from the pot into it.  You may have to do more than one batch here.  Puree the mixture until all of the strands from the Asparagus have become smooth little pieces.  Add water as needed in the process so it is a thick yet fluid consistency.

Pour the pureed bacon and asparagus back into the pot and add some more water to liquefy.  Turn up the heat and bring to a simmer for 20 minutes.  Add fresh cracked salt and pepper.  Voila!

This is a great soup and the bacon flavor really makes the asparagus sing!  It also serves about 4-5 people.  And the best part, it takes no more than 30 minutes to make and is oh so wholesome! 

Enjoy!  And remember to tell me how it worked for you!  Leave comments below!
