Notes
You can use frozen or fresh asparagus in this soup and adding 1 tsp.cumin and 2 tsp. of turmeric is a tasty variation! I prefer not to use can anything but I make exceptions for coconut milk however to date you can find it in mini cartons too! You certainly can use frozen coconut chunks {Trader Joes has this}; if you do you will need to pulse longer to puree those chunks. I love Nikki's Coconut butter however, others will suffice {wink}. Oh, if you are well and able {and not vegan} to have bacon adding a stripe gives this soup a little extra flare! Please use organic ingredients when you can.
