Asparagus and Pea Soup [Vegan, Gluten-Free]






  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 12.3 ounces asparagus spears
  • 2 onions
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 2 large sticks celery
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon dried mixed herbs
  • Salt and a generous amount of pepper, to season


  1. Chop your asparagus into fifths and finely slice your onions as you like.
  2. Then, add them to a large pan, on a medium-high heat, with the 2 tablespoons olive oil.
  3. Fry them for 4-5 minutes, stirring to avoid burning.
  4. Slice your garlic cloves and chop your celery, and add them into the pan to fry for another 2-3 minutes.
  5. When the onions are golden/translucent, add the peas, water, vegetable stock, mixed herbs, and salt and pepper.
  6. Reduce this to a medium heat, and allow it to bubble and cook for about 10 minutes.
  7. When this is done, remove it from the heat (cooling if necessary), and blend before serving – add any extra seasoning if necessary, to suit you. To decorate, you can top the soup with some grilled asparagus, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and some pepper to finish.
