Ingredients
 
 

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 small yellow onion chopped
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 3-4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 3 cup chicken or vegetable broth preferably organic
  • 2 lb asparagus tough ends removed and cut into chunks
  • 1 whole bay leaf
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Instructions
 

  • Select the “Sauté” function on your Instant Pot® and add the butter once hot. Add the onion and season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
  • Cook, occasionally stirring until the onions develop a bit of colour and soften approximately 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for an additional minute.
  • Pour in the broth and deglaze the bottom of the pot, gently scraping up any brown bits off the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon in the process. Turn the unit off.
  • Add the asparagus and bay leaf, and stir to combine. Add lid and lock into place. Position the vent to “Sealing” and set the “Manual” setting to 5 minutes.
  • When cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, then manually release any remaining pressure. Remove the lid and discard the bay leaf.
  • To prevent curdling, temper the heavy cream by adding a small amount of the hot liquid to it before stirring it directly into the pot. Stir to combine.
  • Carefully transfer the asparagus mixture to a food processor or high-powered blender and process until smooth. To serve, transfer hot or chilled soup to individual bowls and garnish with a few drops of heavy cream and a couple of reserved asparagus tips if desired. Enjoy!

Notes

Tip: Reserve a few asparagus tips for garnish before cooking.
For a vegan variation, substitute olive oil for the butter and full-fat coconut milk for the heavy cream.
