Recipe

  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • olive oil, as needed
  • sea salt, to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 (10 ounce) bag frozen peas
  • plain yogurt, for serving
  • microgreens, for serving
  • flaky salt, to taste

Method

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 450˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.

  • Step 2

    Place asparagus on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Roast for 8 minutes and set aside. When cool enough to handle, cut into 1-inch pieces. Reserve some of the tips for garnish (2 to 3 per bowl). Transfer remaining asparagus to a blender.

  • Step 3

    Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium soup pot. Add spring garlic and cook for 1 minute over medium-low heat. Add peas, water or broth, and a pinch of salt. Simmer until peas are tender, about 5 minutes. Add mixture to blender.

  • Step 4

    Blend on high until smooth, about 1 minute. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water or broth, if needed to adjust consistency.

  • Step 5

    To serve, ladle soup into bowls, add a swirl of yogurt or sour cream, reserved asparagus tips, microgreens, and a sprinkle of gomasio or flaky salt. Serve warm or at room temperature.
