This spring time soup is made with all the veggies that are at their peak now. Green onions – lots of it, leeks, asparagus, kohlrabi and thyme. That’s all you need to make this delicious creamy soup.
Soup with in season veggies
Lately my farmbox has had lots of tender plump green onions and asparagus along with kohlrabi and leeks. Really this was my inspiration for my soup. The main flavor in this soup is green onions and leeks and lots of it! I used 2 bunches of green onions for almost 3-4 cups of green onions. And about a cup of leeks finely chopped.
Then a big bunch of plump asparagus about 4 cups, and 2 kohlrabi bulbs are added. Now if you dont’ have kohlrabi substitute with 2 potatoes. I added the kohlrabi for the creamy texture but a potato or two will do the same.
First you saute the onions and leeks in butter then add in the asparagus and kohlrabi, salt and pepper and cook until the veggies are tender. Next add the broth and thyme and bring to a low boil. That’s it! Blend into a creamy smooth texture and serve.
All the flavor comes from the green onions and the creamy texture comes from the kohlrabi. A low calorie healthy soup that looks like its loaded with cream. It’s really delicious on a cool spring evening. Give it a try!
