Description

A creamy but dairy-free soup that’s Paleo, Whole30 and can easily be made AIP-compliant.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 tbs Butter, Ghee, or Coconut Oil
  • 1.5 oz Pancetta, diced
  • 1 Onion, diced
  • 12 oz Asparagus, cut into small pieces
  • 2 cups Chicken Stock
  • 1 tsp Fresh Parsley, chopped
  • 2 tbs Fresh Tarragon, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Milk
  • 1 tsp Lemon Zest
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • Pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, melt the butter, ghee, or oil.
  2. Add the onion and pancetta, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, about 6-8 minutes.
  3. Add the asparagus and stir for 1 minute.
  4. Add stock and cover. Simmer on low for 10 minutes or until the asparagus is tender.
  5. Add the parsley, tarragon, coconut milk, lemon zest, salt and pepper.
  6. Using an immersion blender or working in batches and transferring to a blender, puree the soup.
  7. Return to the pot and warm thoroughly. Season with more salt and pepper if desired. Serve garnished with tarragon or parsley.

Notes

Make AIP-compliant by replacing the pancetta with bacon and omitting the black pepper.
Make vegetarian by omitting the pancetta and using vegetable stock instead. Still yummy!
