Creamy Asparagus Soup in a Bread Bowl

Creamy Asparagus Soup in a Bread Bowl | www.thepeachkitchen.comIt’s the weekend. It’s during these times that we schedule our cheat days and our bingeing…

It’s during these times when the family would wanna eat all things fried, salty and sugary…..

But I just have the thing for you. This is the soup that I want you to eat tomorrow….

It’s monday. Mondays are focusing-on-our-health day.

If you are my peanutbutter, yes you can eat your doughnuts at breakfast but you have to eat this soup…. maybe before devouring that mouthwatering White Magnum during dinner time …

If you are not a soup person then let me at least try to change your mind about this soup.

Well, this soup is as healthy as can be. It’s creamy, it’s vegan, it’s green and it’s packed with asparagus goodness….

It’s also served in a warm crusty bread bowl which you can totally smother with a lot of butter and eat.

I also put some sliced mushroom because there’s leftover mushroom in the fridge for added texture…

    Wow Peach, that looks sooo good! I love asparagus, and I bet I would really, really enjoy that soup in a bread bowl. Love your cover photo, it makes me wish it was in front of me so I could devour it. :)
