Creamy Asparagus & Sunchoke Soup

Asparagus is my favorite crop of the spring season, and I’m always looking for ways to get creative with how I serve it. This creamy soup is dairy free and absolutely delicious! Sunchokes, also known as Jerusalem artichokes, are high in fiber and great for digestive health.
