Creamy Asparagus Soup with Two Garnishes/ Blackberry-Eating in Late September

A delightful and healthy soup, which could use gluten free croutons. I highly recommend using Mineral Broth in place of the water in this recipe, to add to the vitamin and mineral content. Bone Broth would also be an excellent substitute for the water.

Asparagus is wonderfully healthy. Here is an infographic showcasing the health benefits:

Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes β€œGood, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

    That looks so delicious! Asparagus is probably my favorite veggie. When I was a kid we’d always have it canned and I remember hating it. But now that I’ve had it fresh and got to play around with recipes and cooking it, it’s one of my go-to’s. Because I’m keto, I may substitute the croutons for something else. But that looks amazing!
