Creamy Spring Vegetable Soup - Dairy & Gluten Free

I love when Spring arrives. The flowers are starting to bloom, the weather breaks, and a whole new line of vegetables start appearing in the store. Vegetables that are colorful, flavorful, and inspire you to try new recipes. Recipes like this Creamy Spring Vegetable Soup that I put together.

Light and creamy, this vegetable soup is perfect for this time of year. My goal was to make sure it wasn't too heavy, like a winter soup can be, but to also make sure it still had the comfort food type feel. Both of these goals were accomplished and I am thrilled to share this recipe with you.


To Roast or Not To Roast


For this recipe, I chose to roast all my veggies. It's not something you have to do, but I just love the flavors that come out from roasting and wanted to bring that into this vegetable soup.

It also makes it A LOT easier to cook them all at once together! And who doesn't like a shortcut right?

Non-Roasted or Leftovers?


Have a bunch of leftover spring vegetables from a previous meal? Go ahead and use those! No need to roast a whole new batch! It will still taste great.

Don't feel like roasting? That's OK too. Just make sure the asparagus and carrots are cooked. Asparagus al dente and carrots till fork tender. You'll also want to saute your onions and garlic in some oil until they are cooked through also.

  10. This is just what I need!! It's snowing here and I'm craving all the veggies. My mom bought a lot of asparagus for us this past weekend (good deal I guess?) and I left it up at their house on accident. I told them to put it in the freezer, it would probably work perfectly for this.

  11. I LOVE making roasted vegetable pureed soups! In fact, I just made one for tonight with butternut, carrots, onions, and garlic. I like how you made the roux for this. I simply thickened my soup with soy milk. Definitely going to make this once all the spring produce is available!
