This delectable soup is a great way to satisfy a craving for a delicious, creamy soup without the dairy (and you won't even know it's missing!). Asparagus is also a great way to welcome spring, eat seasonally, and get a nice dose of Vitamin K, important for blood clotting, and folate, important for reproductive health in men and women.
