The reason I love this soup so much (and ate it for 2 days straight), is that it reminds me of one of my favorite non-AIP soups – Split Pea with Ham. Remember that oldie but goodie? You all may know by now that I love hacking AIP food. If you follow me on Instagram, you would see that I am constantly trying to make eating AIP easy, easy, easy and making a lot of time saving AIP One Dish Wonders (everything in one dish, about 15 minute prep time, and cooks in the oven together). Time is at a premium for me these days! I am ALL about the shortcuts.
But, back to the soup. It has 5 ingredients. And, it is so creamy you would think that there was cream in it. I did use my Blendtec blender which may make a difference in how effectively the asparagus was blended without having random asparagus fibers which I think makes the soup a little on the sad side. I find that being sure you trim the root-ends of the asparagus at least 2-3 inches makes a big difference. If you don’t have a pressure cooker or a high speed blender, don’t despair. You can do stove top and a regular blend for this recipe too!
