Ingredients

  • 2 T. unsalted butter
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3 c. chicken or vegetable broth, preferably organic
  • 2 lbs. asparagus, tough ends removed and diced small
  • 1 whole bay leaf
  • 1 c. heavy cream

Instructions

  1. 1. Select the “Sauté” function on the Instant Pot®/or soup pot and add butter once hot. Add onion and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions develop a bit of color and soften, approximately 4-5 minutes. Add garlic and sauté for an additional minute.
  2. 2. Pour in broth and deglaze the bottom of the pot, gently scraping up any brown bits off the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon in the process. Turn unit off.
  3. 3. Add asparagus and bay leaf, and stir to combine cover and cook medium high heat bring to boil then reduce heat to simmer for 45 minutes, if using a instant pot place lid on and lock into place. Position the vent to “Sealing” and set the “Manual” setting to 5 minutes.
  4. 4. When cook time is complete, 15 minutes for instant pot allow pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, then manually release any remaining pressure. Remove lid and discard bay leaf.
  5. 5. To prevent curdling, temper the heavy cream by adding a small amount of the hot liquid to it before stirring it directly into the pot. Stir to combine.
  6. Or heat cream before adding to pot.
  7. 6. Carefully transfer asparagus mixture to a food processor or high-powered blender and process until smooth. To serve, transfer hot or chilled soup to individual bowls and garnish with a few drops of heavy cream and a couple reserved asparagus tips, if desired. Enjoy!
  8. I prefer using a heavy soup pot. Simmer longer the instant pot.

The airtight seal is what creates the pressure, which will eventually need to be released, and to do so safely, you’ll need to read the directions that come with your pot. But generally speaking, you’ll either use the quick-release method (which involves pressing a handle or a button that your pot’s directions will identify for you), or the natural-release method (which involves simply letting the cooker cool down and release pressure naturally; this can take up to 15 minutes).
