Asparagus soup with sweet potato

Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

Four seasons in one day. Where we were still enjoying 22 degrees and plenty of sun last week, we are now dealing with wintry weather. In that respect, a special Easter. In addition to the second Easter in lockdown, Easter 2021 will be remembered as White Easter. Looking for eggs in the snow, who would have ever thought? Even as I write this down, the sun has just disappeared behind the clouds and the first snowflakes are falling again. Prince even once wrote a song about it: Snow in April! But also the arrival of a very different fine season. Namely the asparagus season and that's why I'm sharing a very nice recipe for bound asparagus soup with sweet potato.

From sun and drinks at the park, to snow, to rain.

The white gold in the pan

The white gold is ready for us! A bag of asparagus just feels like luxury without even having eaten one. My daughter Vive is unfortunately not a very easy eater, but she always likes soup in one way or another. Whatever color the soup is, she doesn't care. While green bits in the food are invariably removed. All the more reason to make a delicious asparagus soup. On the one hand, because it is simply one of the tastiest soups. On the other hand, because he is really very healthy. There are a number of proven and unproven health benefits of asparagus.

Basically it comes down to doing your body well. The nice thing about making asparagus soup yourself? You don't have to throw anything away. You draw a delicious broth from the bottoms and the skins, which then form the basis for your soup. I often use the 'misfits' to make the soup. They're not pretty straight, but they taste just as good. No sooner said than done.

Asparagus soup with sweet potato: Cooking together

Vive and I made an asparagus soup with sweet potato together. Stirring into the soup is the highlight for Vive while cooking. And secretly for me too. Such a beautiful smooth creamy white soup is a sight to behold. With this recipe below you can also conjure such a delicious soup on the table. A boiled egg and chicken strips complete it all and also provide some extra protein.

Here you will find the complete recipe with all the ingredients you need. I hope you have fun preparing the dish below.

    Nice recipe, but not complete.
    Whipped cream and chicken pieces are listed with the ingredients,
    but not in the preparation…
    Wrong recipe?

    1. Hi Henriette, no it says at step 4, the whipped cream is added there, and at the last step are the pieces of chicken that you add as a garnish with the egg. Enjoy your dinner! Gr Francine
