Spring Soup

Like so many of you, I am thrillllled (with a trill) it is asparagus season. I am happy with all the green sprouts everywhere and I am glad the earth is thriving. Spring also tends to bring a lot of rain and after a walk outside today, succeeding in completely soaking my right foot (I think I might need new shoes), I had only one thing on my mind: spring soup.
It isn't exactly what I was imagining it being - and it doesn't help poor un-photogenic soup's cause that it's BROWN and not green - but it warmed and filled me up. I had a salad and a homemade biscuit on the side.

The soup had onion, veg broth, thyme, oregano, black pepper, mushrooms, asparagus, green peas, spinach, and a bit of lemon juice. At the very end I stirred in about a tablespoon (all I had left) of some pesto (garlic, walnuts, basil, spinach, salt, nooch, olive oil).
The biscuits were my go-to from The Joy of Vegan Baking, with a little less oil and 1/3 cup fine cornmeal subbed in for flour.


  1. Yum! That looks like a delicious, nutritious soup!

  2. The soup sounds great! I really like the idea of adding pesto to it, I bet it made is nice and tasty. It looks perfect for a rainy day with all those chunky vegetables. "thrilled" with a trill...cute!...that made me laugh.

  3. Your pee must have smelled wonderful!

  4. I'll be honest and say that looks so gross! Lol! But it sounds lovely

  5. Asparagus season = yay!! I'm bouncing off the walls in excitement over here - and glad to know that I'm not alone. :)

  6. It looks like Swamp Thing could've lurking in the bottom of that bowl. "Swamp Thing want a biscuit?"

  7. The soup sounds great, and I need something like this today to warm me up. I am about to FREEZE! :o)

  8. Thanks, everyone, for your honesty at least! Haha maybe next I'll attempt a raw spring soup to keep the vibrancy intact.

    Joe, like fresh spring showers.
