Super Simple Instant Pot Asparagus Soup

The Instant Pot Asparagus Soup is a great way to use that glorious green Spring veggie, the Asparagus!  The recipe is my old stand by one but this time I made it in my new Instant Pot.

In the Instant Pot, I sauteed the onion and the asparagus, added the broth, seasonings and let her rip.  I started this process at 5:00 but did not plan to eat until around 7:00.  Once the initial cooking was complete, I let it stay in the “Keep Warm” cycle for an hour.  Then, I transferred this to my high speed blender and let it blend for about 30-40 seconds.

Wiping out the IP inner pot just to get out any remaining small bits, I poured the pureed soup back into the Instant Pot and set the “Soup” setting for 4 minutes.  When it was finished, it had a nice soft bubble going on and was the perfect “hot soup” temperature!

This soup can be ready to eat in about 30-35 minutes, or you can delay the process to work on your schedule.  That is the beauty of the Instant Pot!

This soup is gluten-free, dairy-free and all natural!  It is great for lunch or dinner and can be the main course, too, served with a nice salad, such as my Blistered Tomato Salad.
