Creamy Asparagus Soup for Spring (Low-Carb Recipe)

Creamy Asparagus Soup for Spring - Asparagus season - Healthy recipes for diabetes - One Drop

There is something absolutely delectable about pureed soups. This one, in particular, is so rich, creamy, and fresh that you may have to stop yourself from getting extra helpings! Not to mention, it’s a perfect dish to ring in spring—asparagus is in season right now.

To finish the soup off and add extra texture, sauté the asparagus tips over high heat, just before serving. They get crispy and caramelized, but still firm enough to hold their shape.

Some heavy cream on top of the soup will add nice color contrast.

When is Asparagus Season?

In the Northern Hemisphere, asparagus is usually in season from late February to June, just in time for spring holidays like Easter and Passover. Asparagus season runs from September to December in the Southern Hemisphere. 

Eating with the seasons has its advantages. Fruits and vegetables picked during their peak season are often more flavorful and were harvested more recently. Plus, in-season veggies are usually more affordable since the produce is widely available. If you’re eco-conscious, eating seasonally reduces the carbon footprint from bringing in produce from close by that is in season.
