Creamy Asparagus Pea Soup

I’ve always wanted to have a garden party. The kind where the tables are placed on the lawn, and decorated with beautiful laces and tea cups. I imagine I would hold it at my favorite time of day, where the late afternoon glow of the sun turns the world into a magical, golden place. The lavender would be in bloom, and bees would be buzzing happily around the buds.

I did try to have a garden party once. I obsessed about the idea all spring, as my Pinterest board will confirm, and then I finally sent out invitations. It was going to be perfect. I had a color scheme, the whole meal planned out, and all the husbands, wives, and babies I thought I could fit in our yard. I baked and cooked and stirred for hours. I made my Creamy Asparagus Pea Soup and I decorated all day with burlap runners, lace doilies, and tea cups.

And then it was 90 degrees Fahrenheit outside. So I moved the garden party moved indoors. All the husbands, all the wives, and all the babies crammed into my tiny 600 sq ft. apartment until the sun set enough for us to move the party out onto the lawn.

It was still a lovely day.

I would do it again, but maybe plan to host the garden party a little later in the evening when the temperature is just a bit cooler. I like the idea of a maybe having a dessert bar and stringing lights up across the yard and chatting outside until the fireflies come out.

This Creamy Asparagus Pea Soup would definitely still be on the menu.

It’s easy to make, can be thrown into a crock pot, and fancy enough to be on gourmet menu. You only need three ingredients, thirty minutes, and a blender to complete this recipe. The creaminess comes from raw cashews that are cooked with the asparagus and peas until tender.
