Cascade Mushroom Asparagus Soup

Cascade Mushroom Asparagus Soup


  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Cascade Mushroom Mix
  • 3 pounds asparagus, bottoms trimmed, cut into 1' pieces
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large pot or Dutch oven, sauté the onion in olive oil over medium low heat for about 3 minutes, until the onions are translucent.
  2. Add the Cascade Mushroom Mix and stir to coat the onions. Continue cooking 1 minute more.
  3. Add the asparagus and increase the heat to medium. Stir gently to combine and cook until the asparagus pieces are bright green, about 3 minutes.
  4. Pour the vegetable broth into the Dutch oven and bring the mixture to a low boil. Cook until the asparagus is fork tender, about 6-8 minutes. Do not over-cook!
  5. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature and transfer in batches to a high speed blender to pureé.
  6. Return the soup to the pan and heat before serving.


I am typically a huge fan of the immersion blender but with this soup it is best to use a stronger blender to avoid a stringy consistency from the asparagus.
