This Cheesy Roasted Asparagus Soup is incredibly cheesy, creamy and flavourful without the use of any dairy products. The perfect easy & healthy bowl of soup using in season spring ingredients.
Despite the warmer weather coming in, soups never go out of season. Especially when you can make use of the seasonal ingredients and make a delicious creamy, cheesy and flavour packed soup that tastes good chilled or warm!
This recipe was inspired by my Broccoli Mac & Cheese Soup I made in the winter. I love cheesy and creamy soups but instead of using broccoli, I’m using an ingredient that is in season in the spring: asparagus! I absolutely love roasted asparagus so why not in a soup with cheesy goodness coming from the nutritional yeast.
I much prefer using an air fryer to “roast” my vegetables. They take half the amount of time, does not heat up my kitchen (perfect for the hotter seasons) AND it becomes so crispy!
The creaminess of this soup is all thanks to the cashews. I first made this with coconut milk which also tasted fine but I didn’t care for the coconut-y taste. The potatoes used in this recipe gives it a bit more texture and thickness! If you like a more runny-er soup, feel free to add in some more broth.
The soup is delicious on its own but I always like to top off my soups with a lil’ somethin’ somethin’. Croutons, toasted bread or this cheez-it granola that I highly recommend! Different textures in a dish is always a solid yes in my book, especially for soups. Well friends, what are you waiting for? Theres so much asparagus in the grocery store right now, make use of them while they last!

Tips and Tricks to making Cheesy Roasted Asparagus Soup
- I love using my air fryer to “roast” vegetables because it requires half the amount of time and does not heat up my kitchen (perfect for the warmer weather). BUT you can still make this using a oven! Same temperature with more time (around double the time).
- If you’re in a pinch, you can add the asparagus to the pot instead of roasting it (around 4-5 minutes), it’s still delicious!
- Add in a bit of vegan butter for a richer flavour.
