KIMBERLY SNYDER’S ASPARAGUS AND LEEK SOUP

This asparagus and leek soup by Kimberly Snyder is healthy and easy to make – which are the type of soup recipes we LOVE!

As you may or may not know, asparagus is a nutrient dense, cancer fighting powerhouse!

Aside from blanching and roasting these beautiful shoots, half the fun is finding clever ways to incorporate them into your heart healthy diet.

This is a popular Kimberly Snyder recipe from her Beauty Detox book, using nutritious asparagus and luscious leeks as the main flavor players.

The flavor of this pureéd soup is creamy and rich, and made simple by using a power blender however it can be made with a “regular” blender as well! 🙂

I adapted her recipe to give it a creamier high calcium boost by quickly making a cashew cream, see 2nd option included in the recipe.

This gluten free, vegan soup is a perfect addition to an afternoon salad or can be enjoyed on its own.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF ASPARAGUS AND LEEKS

Asparagus has long been heralded as a strong anti-inflammatory food, full of saponins and anti-oxidants.

It is also rich in Vitamin K and high in prebiotic inulin, making it a great addition to your heart healthy diet.

Leeks are full of the flavonoid kaempferol, that has been shown to help protect our blood vessel linings from damage.

Also present in leeks are impressive concentrations of antioxidant polyphenols, which also help cleanse and protect our blood vessels.

A great anti-oxidant duo, these two make!
