  • 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 cut into chunks
  • 1 whole bay leaf
  • 1 c. heavy cream


  • 1. Select the “Sauté” function on the Instant 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. 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. Add asparagus and bay leaf, and stir to combine. Add lid and lock into place. Position the vent to “Sealing” and set the “Manual” setting to 5 minutes.
  • 4. When cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for 10
    minutes, then manually release any remaining pressure. Remove lid and discard bay leaf.
  • 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. 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!
