I love broccoli and asparagus.  Putting them together in a soup?  Why not!  I love blending soups to give them a ‘creamy’ texture without the cream.  This is a delicious soup for spring!

Best of all, this soup is done in about 30 minutes, including prep and cooking time.

All of my kids liked this one, so I will definitely be making it again!  Sully loved it, but I don’t think he has ever met a soup he didn’t love.

I used herbs that I had on hand and that sounded good, but feel free to substitute with your favorites.  The great thing about soup is that you really can’t go wrong.

Ingredients:

  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 5-6 cups vegetable stock or water (adjust liquid based on desired soup consistency)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 can organic cannellini beans, drained and rinsed (or 2 cups fresh beans)
  • 2 bunches of broccoli, florets only
  • 1 bunch of asparagus (about 1 pound), cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Juice of 1/2 large lemon or 1 whole small lemon
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Fresh chives, finely chopped

Directions:
