1-Sautéing the Aromatics: In a large pot or Dutch oven, melt the butter over medium heat (or heat the olive oil for a vegan option). Add the diced onion and minced garlic to the pot and sauté for about 5 minutes until the onions turn translucent and the garlic becomes fragrant.
2-Simmering the Asparagus: Cut the asparagus spears into 1-inch pieces, reserving a few tender tips for garnish if desired. Add the asparagus pieces (excluding the reserved tips) to the pot with the sautéed onions and garlic. Pour in the vegetable broth, season with salt and pepper to taste, and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover the pot, and let the soup simmer for about 15-20 minutes until the asparagus is tender and easily pierced with a fork.
3-Blending and Creamy Finish: Using an immersion blender or transferring the soup to a countertop blender (in batches if necessary), blend the soup until smooth and creamy. Return the blended soup to the pot (if using a countertop blender), and place it back over low heat. Stir in the heavy cream (or coconut milk) and heat the soup gently for a few minutes until warmed through. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper according to your taste preferences.
4-Serving and Garnishing: Ladle the creamy asparagus soup into serving bowls. Garnish with the reserved asparagus tips (steamed or sautéed), chopped fresh parsley, grated Parmesan cheese, or croutons, as desired. Serve the soup hot and enjoy its comforting flavors and vibrant green color.
