However, I never actually made asparagus in a soup! I’ve had asparagus soups at restaurants before and I remember enjoying them, but I’m not sure why I never thought to make it at home until now. It’s just so tasty and easy!

Make It a Main Dish

If you don’t want to cook multiple dishes and want to make this Whole30 asparagus soup a main dish, you totally can! I love adding protein to my veggies soups to make them heartier and more filling. Here are some yummy additions that would go well in this soup:

I would just add these in with the coconut milk at the end and let everything simmer for about 5 more minutes before taking off heat and serving.

Even with the added protein, this dish takes about 30 minutes, and you’ll love the amazing flavor of hearty asparagus that stand out in this soup!

    Gorgeous – so simple and my favorite way to enjoy spring asparagus – in soup form! The flavor of the ghee must be so lovely with this!

    I love how you managed to keep this soup such a pretty green-yellow bright color! So often asparagus soups end up being kind of drab and unappealing to look at. I look forward to making yours!

    I made this soup today (with coconut oil instead of ghee & chicken broth) and it was delicious! I actually tasted it before I added the coconut milk and it was good as is, but the coconut milk really makes it super rich & creamy!!
