Cream of Asparagus Soup

Asparagus Soup

Find out the number one panini to pair with your DELICIOUS bowl of Cream of Asparagus Soup

After creating my favorite panini in the world, caramelized onion ham and cheese panini, I wanted a perfect soup to compliment it. This cream of asparagus soup was a match made in Heaven. While dipping the panini into the soup I thought to myself “I’m eating vegetables with the panini, so now its healthier right??!!” Maybe it doesn’t remove all the calories from the panini, but it sure does taste like it’s good for the soul.

The magical moment of indulgence abruptly ended when my toddler awoke from his nap. Thankfully, I had already devoured all of the panini, so I served him the asparagus soup chilled for lunch. He devoured the soup quickly and asked for more, loving it. This asparagus soup is simple and tasty served warm or cold.

The birds are starting to chirp, the cold is starting to break and spring is going to show up soon! While we are all waiting very patiently for this to occur we can still pretend it’s Spring time by eating all of the seasonal food our heart desires.
