I knew I had to use up the asparagus I had in the frig. I decided to make a creamy asparagus and potato soup. Out of all my gluten free soup recipes that are creamy, I find this one to be the healthiest. When deciding on a thickener I considered using a gluten-free sour cream and Greek yogurt, but remembered what Gluten Free Chef Rob mentioned about thickening things naturally. I already had some boiled potatoes in the frig which I added in, but you can add fresh potatoes to this recipe all in one pot. I usually use potatoes in sweeter soups such as my Zucchini Mango Soup Recipe and Butternut Squash and Apple Soup, but this turned out wonderful, – not too much asparagus, just right, and nice and savory! Enjoy!
Asparagus Health Benefits
Asparagus is a good source of folic acid, Vitamins A, B and C; makes a great diuretic; and its fibers flush out our gastrointestinal tract.
Those with cystitis, gut and arthritis should avoid asparagus, as they are known to worsen symptoms, yet the reason is unknown.
