The Food Matters Project: Roasted Asparagus and White Bean Soup

When the first asparagus bunches arrive at the markets every spring, I start getting excited. The bright green spears remind me of the changing seasons, and new cravings for warmer weather. When it comes to making soups, I've been obsessed with the incredible power of my Vitamix, for which I rely to ensure the creamiest consistency for soups. I made this soup very quickly, using only 4 cups of homemade white beans (made a couple of days before), 1 bunch of roasted asparagus spears, and vegetable stock.

For the original recipe, visit Adrienne's blog.

Lovely pictures... Someday when I can afford to, I will get a nice blender that can power through hardcore stuff. My poor blender can't even properly blend roasted peppers pesto.

Your soup looks super creamy! Someday, I'll get a Vitamix. Such pretty pictures, Nicole!
