Got Asparagus? Make this DELICIOUS Spanish Asparagus Soup

This Spanish Asparagus Soup, known as Sopa de Esparragos Trigueros, truly showcases that asparagus are so much more than just a side dish. It´s filled with a ton of great textures & flavors, effort-less to put together and all done in just 30 minutes.

Serve this delicious soup next to a crunchy baguette and a bottle of Spanish red wine, more specifically from the wine region of Jumilla, and you´re going to have yourself a complete and nourishing meal.

Spanish Asparagus Soup
What really flavors this soup is the sweet smoked Spanish paprika. You can add in other spices and herbs if you like. But by keeping this soup simple, is what makes it stand-out above the crowd.

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: To make this soup I used regular asparagus. So it took about 5 minutes for the asparagus to be tender. If you are using super thin asparagus, go for about 3 minutes. If you´re using super thick spears, go for about 10 minutes.
