Welcome spring into your home with this seasonal soup recipe. Warmer weather gives way to local produce favorites like asparagus and green beans that make great additions to simple dishes. This soup pairs several vegetables together to create a flavorful, homemade soup that is filled with fiber.
- Set a large pot on the stove over medium low heat and add olive oil to the pot. Once warmed, add garlic and sliced leeks. Cook until leeks are soft (around 5 minutes).
- To the pot, add the broth, asparagus, cauliflower florets, tomatoes, green beans, carrots, beans, basil and thyme. Bring soup to a boil. Once soup is boiling, turn down the heat to low and simmer uncovered for 15-20 minutes until vegetables are tender.
- Add in the peas and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat and enjoy!
