An easy Asparagus Soup with Goat Cheese recipe made with onions, garlic, fresh asparagus and creamy goat cheese. This is a simple, gluten free and easy to make soup that tastes just like spring!
Spring means just one thing… It’s officially Asparagus season! And better known as one of my favourite seasons.
And to celebrate this great season (and by celebrate I really just mean eat), I bring you soup. Really tasty and gluten free Easy Asparagus Soup with Goat Cheese topped with more goat cheese and just a drizzle olive oil.
And if that’s just not enough, look at that colour! So green. So pretty. Really so easy to make.
I am a soup lover!
And a lover of all type of soups – but especially the silky smooth puree soups, like this one. I just can’t get enough. Even if it is too hot for words outside. And most definitely when it is too cold for words outside.
I especially love soup in the summer, though. It’s the perfect way to feature your favourite veggies – soup can really bring out the true flavours of those vegetables. And talk about a nutritious and delicious bowl of goodness while keeping things light.
This soup was actually the product of getting overly excited last weekend at farmer’s market. Asparagus was everywhere! It seemed like every single table was overflowing with the cute green spears. And I just couldn’t stop myself from buying what felt like 8 pounds of asparagus… and then making Joshua lug it back to the car with all my other bags of goodies. (He loves going shopping with me.)
So, naturally, I did what anyone who had an extra pound (…or eight) of asparagus would do – made these honey and lemon roasted asparagus every single night and then made a soup!

Aside from the colour of this soup being a wonderful shade of green, I also love the flavour!
The asparagus is there, but it’s subtle. I think that is what I like most about this Easy Asparagus Soup – you know that it is asparagus without it being overpowering and in your face about it. Is that weird?
Yeah… but anyway, that subtle asparagus pairs so well with all the savoury goodness from the onions and garlic. You really want to cook the onions and garlic down, getting all those great aromatic flavours with having them start to brown. Homemade Veggie Stock is also a great addition to this soup! And then just let those flavours really come together with the fresh asparagus. (Yep – this soup is pretty much a work of art!)
And then there’s the rich and creamy tang from the goat cheese (which happens to be my favourite kind of cheese these days – I put it in everything… like pasta!).
I suggest adding a little extra crumbled goat cheese on top followed by a drizzle of olive oil. Flavoured olive oil if you have it. Chilli oil add a little kick of spice that is so unexpected so good. Or try a herbed oil for a lighter touch. And it makes the soup look even prettier too.
