Bacon Asparagus Soup

Bacon Asparagus Soup

For those who may not even like asparagus

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  ~~~~~~   November 25, 2022 (LSNews)   Asparagus may not be everybody’s favourite vegetable. However, this recipe for asparagus soup is one that even those who eschew the green spears, might find hard to resist. My husband loves this soup and he is no fan of asparagus. It’s all about the bacon!


  • 1 lb fresh asparagus
  • ½ diced sweet onion
  • 2 cups of chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 strips of raw bacon (chopped into 1 inch pieces)
  • ⅓ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ tsp chili pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Cut the tips off the asparagus spears and set aside

Chop the asparagus stalks into pieces about ½ inch thick

Place the chopped stalks and diced onion into a pot, add olive oil and ¼ cup of the chicken broth

Let the mixture cook until stalks have softened, then add the bacon and 1 cup of the chicken stock and the chili peppers

Let the mixture boil until asparagus is completely softened and bacon is cooked

Puree the mixture with a blender or mixer until all bacon and asparagus are gone


Return to pot and bring to a simmer, add Parmesan cheese and add remaining chicken broth and continue to simmer.

Steam the asparagus tips to add as garnish in soup, along with another sprinkle of Parmesan and serve
