Asparagus is one of my favorite foods this time of year, but the rest of my family can get bored if I just stick to the same asparagus recipes. This 10-minute Asparagus & Cheese Soup is a super-easy recipe to whip up on a busy weeknight while also giving incredible health benefits. Check out our other easy soup recipes

This is a filling, delicious soup to make if you just want something comforting or need an appetizer to round out a special supper. Pair it with a salad or soup for a filling lunch, or even just grab a bun or biscuit for a filling afternoon snack.

This fun twist on a classic asparagus soup uses cheese and milk to achieve an unbelievably creamy and thick texture.

Change out the thyme with your own favorite spice – sumac or a bit of lemon zest would give this soup a bright, fresh flavor while cayenne pepper and some crushed chili flakes would spice things up a bit.
