Tarragon gives this fennel & asparagus soup some wonderful flavours. A warming and nutritious light meal, perfect on a chilly spring day.
For added crunch and taste, don’t skip the almond and seed topping (even though this soup is delicious on its own).
This recipe makes use of every part of asparagus so there is no need to bother chopping off the hard stalks as they cook perfectly well in soup. If you want, you could save some of the pretty tips to use for presentation but the almond and seed topping looks fabulous on its own with just a dollop of dairy-free cream.
The UK asparagus is season is very short so make the very best of it by enjoying them as often as possible. Check my asparagus recipe selection for inspiration. From asparagus soup, to quiche, salad or even pizza there is quite a lot to choose from.
