Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 30 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 2 tbs Butter Ghee, or Coconut Oil
  • 1.5 oz Pancetta diced (bacon for AIP)
  • 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 omit for AIP

Instructions
 

  • In a large pot, melt the butter, ghee, or oil.
  • Add the onion and pancetta, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, about 6-8 minutes.
  • Add the asparagus and stir for 1 minute.
  • Add stock and cover. Simmer on low for 10 minutes or until the asparagus is tender.
  • Add the parsley, tarragon, coconut milk, lemon zest, salt and pepper.
  • Using an immersion blender or working in batches and transferring to a blender, puree the soup.
  • 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!
