Two super foods in one bowl! Asparagus and leek soup is traditionally a spring soup but with all the hearty meals that we indulge ourselves with in the winter season, it is nice to have something light and loaded with nutrition. This soup is super quick and easy to make, it is vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free and low in calories. I like to add avocado to this soup, which makes it nice and creamy and adds even more nutrients, but you can add other toppings like cheese, crunchy bacon, ham or what ever you prefer. Enjoy this light yet filling soup that will provide you with many health benefits
