Instant Pot Asparagus Soup

I’ve finally found a way to truly enjoy asparagus! This Asparagus Soup is delicious!!

(This post contains affiliate links. Please see my disclosure for more info.)

The only other way I like asparagus is wrapped in bacon but this soup recipe is a healthier way for me to enjoy it.

I made this in the Instant Pot but if you don’t have one I’m including directions for the stovetop as well.

Would you believe this is only 2 points per serving for blue, green and purple!? Each serving is about 2 cups.

You can garnish this with chives, chopped bacon and/or cream. Just make sure you add additional points if necessary.

I had this soup with a half sandwich and it was a filling, low point meal!

This asparagus soup is also perfect for meal prep. It reheats great!

To make this asparagus soup I melted butter in the Instant Pot and cooked the onion for 3 minutes. Then I added the garlic and let that cook for 1 minute.

I cut the rough ends off of the asparagus then cut it into 2 inch pieces. I then added the asparagus and chicken broth to the Instant Pot. I selected the “manual” setting for 10 minutes, then released the pressure right away.

To get the soup nice and smooth I used a hand blender. It’s perfect for soups and even guacamole.

Once the soup was nice and smooth I added the fat-free half and half and seasoned with salt and pepper.
