Ingredients

  • 2 lbs asparagus tough ends trimmed
  • 2 tbsp ghee or coconut oil for vegan or AIP
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • 1 tsp sea salt or more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper omit for AIP
  • 5 cups bone broth or chicken broth (or vegetable broth for vegan)
  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • juice of 1/2 lemon or more taste

Instructions

  • Wash the asparagus and chop in half.
  • In a large saucepan, heat ghee over medium heat.
  • Add garlic and onion and sauté until soft, about 2 minutes.
  • Add asparagus, salt, and pepper, and cook stirring for 5 minutes. 
  • Pour in bone broth, cover, and let it come to a simmer.
  • Turn down the heat to medium low and simmer for 15 minutes until the asparagus is cooked through and soft. 
  • Use an immersion blender to blender the contents until smooth. If you don't have an immersion blender, you can transfer the contents to a regular blender to blend. Return back to the pot.
