The combination of flavors is unbelievably delicious: the subtle sweetness of the coconut milk, mild curry and the interesting bittersweet taste of the asparagus make for a most delectable appetizer or even lunch entrée. Just remember to pair this soup with your favorite protein if you’re going to eat this as a stand-alone dish.
This soup is completely dairy free, gluten-free and a very healthy quickly prepared alternative to canned soups or store-bought “healthy” soups, that are loaded with sodium and processed. Make this in advance for lunches, dinners or for your favorite friends. This soup is prepared well under 20 minutes and will keep in the fridge for up to a week.
Asparagus is incredibly nutritious and is a member of the lily family. It is packed with vitamin K, B, C and A. It boasts an impressive line up of vitamin B1, B2, B3, and B6, including phosphorus, potassium, manganese, copper, plenty of dietary fiber and protein.
