Have you ever seen anything so beautiful? Cured meat atop a sea of green goodness. Just kidding, it looks super gross in this picture, but it tastes really good.
Makes me wanna make this soup again right now—luckily, it’s so easy that I could make it again and be eating within 20 minutes.
I used to make cream of asparagus soup using a roux, which is (by definition: wheat flour and butter) not at all paleo-friendly. This version is pretty no-frills. It’s tasty enough that I don’t miss the roux and the prosciutto garnish totally makes up for the Parmesan that I used to put on top.
