Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Asparagus trimmed
  • 1 Onion thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • 5 cups Chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Lemon juice
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions

Instant Pot Instructions:

  • Cut asparagus into 1-inch pieces and roughly chop the onion.
  • Set Instant Pot to SAUTE and add butter, onions, and asparagus. Saute for 2 minutes.
  • Add broth to the Instant Pot and lock lid in place.
  • Turn the valve to SEALING and set to HIGH pressure for 10 minutes.
  • When the timer goes off press cancel and let the Instant Pot do a natural release for 5 minutes before turning the valve to VENTING to release the remaining pressure.
  • Open the lid and use a stick blender (immersion blender) to puree the content until smooth. Note: At this point, if the soup is thicker than you prefer you can add more broth until it is the desired consistency.
  • Pour in the heavy cream, stirring to fully combine.
  • Add the lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Enjoy!

Stove Top Instructions:

  • Cut asparagus into 1-inch pieces and roughly chop the onion.
  • Heat a medium pot with butter on the stove over medium high heat.
  • Add asparagus and onion and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add broth, cover with a lid, and bring it to a boil.
  • Once it reaches a boil reduce it to a simmer and let cook for 20 minutes or until vegetables are extremely soft.
  • Remove pot from heat and use a stick blender to puree the contents until it is smooth.
  • Stir in cream. Note: At this point, if the soup is thicker than you prefer you can add more broth until it is the desired consistency.
  • Add lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Enjoy!
