Chilled Asparagus Spinach Soup
Chilled Asparagus Spinach Soup
Paired with ArborBrook MLH Klipsun Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc
In the summer there is no better match for a warm day on the deck than a glass of crisp Sauvignon Blanc and this chilled soup. To make the soup vegan use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth and omit the Crème Fraiche for a drizzle of basil infused olive oil
2 pounds asparagus cut into 1” pieces
2 medium sweet onions diced
1-2 garlic cloves diced
¼ teaspoon dried thyme
¼ teaspoon coriander powder
3 cups chicken stock or vegetable broth
8oz bag fresh spinach
Crème Fraiche for topping (optional) or a drizzle of basil infused olive oil
In a large pot sauté the cut asparagus, diced onions, salt, and pepper in a couple tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat for 10-15 minutes. Stir frequently to keep the onions from browning and cook till asparagus is tender. Toss in the garlic, thyme, and coriander and stir a minute or so until fragrant. Pour in the broth and bring to a soft boil and then add the spinach, stir and boil for 3-4 minutes till the spinach is bright green.
Remove from heat and let cool before pouring into a blender in batches to puree till smooth. If you have a submersion blender you can use that to puree the soup as well.
Cover and chill to ready to serve. The soup will hold up if you want to make it in the morning. Pour into a bowl and top with Crème Fraiche or a drizzle of basil infused olive oil.
