Creamy Healthy Asparagus Soup with Avocado and Fennel

"Like spring in a bowl, this leek, fennel, and asparagus soup recipe relies on avocado to add all that creaminess and good fat, while Kettle & Fire’s Chicken Bone Broth piles on the protein and a good dose of nutrients that are hard to find in other food sources. Fresh lemon thyme adds another layer of tang, while a squeeze of lemon at the end brightens the whole dish up. It’s one of those healthy recipes that you won’t be able to get enough of."

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil plus more for serving
  • 1 large leek white and pale green parts finely chopped
  • 1 fennel bulb thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt
  • 4 cups Kettle & Fire Chicken Bone Broth
  • 2 pounds asparagus trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon lemon thyme leaves minced
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1 avocado peeled, pitted, and diced
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  1. In a large saucepan over medium-low heat, warm oil. Add leek and fennel and a large pinch of salt. Cook, stirring frequently, until fully softened but not browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in bone broth and bring to a simmer.

  2. Add asparagus and thyme. Bring to a simmer and cook for 1 minute. Remove a few asparagus tips and use them for garnish. Continue simmering soup until asparagus is soft, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add lemon juice and avocado.

  3. Blend soup using an immersion blender or in batches using a blender until it's smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve. Garnish with reserved asparagus tips, fennel fronds, olive oil and greek yogurt, if using.
