  • 1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 lbs asparagus trimmed, chopped, tips reserved
  • 1 medium red potato peeled and chopped
  • 5 cups vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1 avocado pitted, flesh removed
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme (or 1/2 Tbsp fresh)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup basil leaves, loosely packed chopped


  • Heat olive oil in a stock pot. Add onion and garlic and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Add asparagus pieces (except for the tips), potato and the chicken stock. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 10-15 minutes until the asparagus and potato are tender.
  • While the soup is simmering, blanch the asparagus tips and then plunge in cold water to stop the cooking. Set aside.
  • Add the avocado to the soup and puree with an immersion blender or in batches in a blender.
  • Stir in the lemon juice, thyme, salt and pepper. Serve in bowls and garnish with the chopped basil and asparagus tips.
