Creamy Asparagus Leek Soup with Basil

Creamy Asparagus Leek with Basil Soup.jpg

I love asparagus soup. It's my favorite and my go-to! This leek/ basil combo gives it a rich, rustic flavor profile. So good!!

Did you know that leeks have the bioavailable form of folate? Bonus!! AND, they support cardiovascular health!

I hope you enjoy this velvety-rich soup as much as my family did!

•2 bunches organic asparagus
•1 organic leek
•3 strips uncured bacon
•3 large garlic cloves, crushed
•1/4 cup fresh basil
•5 cups bone broth

  1. Roughly chop The asparagus, bacon and basil.
  2. Remove dark green portion of leek, and roughly chop the white and light green portion.
