Spring Asparagus, Leek + Pea Soup

March 21, 2017

Asparagus, Leek + Pea SoupAuthor: Lily Mazzarella
This silky, vibrant green soup is the epitome of spring. It is simple to make, but with the addition of some reserved peas, pumpkin seeds and fresh herbs are texturally complex and delightful. If you're having the soup for lunch, make sure to add a serving of collagen or pea protein to keep your energy up and your hunger in check. Enjoy with flax crackers, or pair with a turkey patty, sweet potato, or chickpea pancake for a heartier meal.

Ingredients

1-quart veggie or bone broth
6-8 c water
1 bunch (~20 medium spears) asparagus, tough ends trimmed and cut into thirds
2 1/4 c frozen organic petite peas, thawed (you can use fresh if you have the time and inclination)
2 leeks, white parts + 2 inches of green parts, slivered
1 wedge preserved lemon
1 avocado
1 handful chopped fresh parsley
1 tbsp chopped fresh mint (optional)
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Collagen or pea protein

Instructions

Heat olive oil in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Sauté leeks until slightly translucent (about 8 mins), and salt lightly.

Add broth and water, asparagus and peas, and bring to boil. Lower heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes.

Turn off heat. Add preserved lemon and avocado.

Reserve 1/2 c peas. Working in batches, puree soup until silky. (At this point, I usually add 1 tbsp of collagen per cup of soup, so that it can blend evenly in the Vitamix).

Add salt and pepper to taste, and stir in peas and fresh herbs, saving some for garnish.

Life saver!

Recommended to me by 2 Naturopaths. this product has helped me out of SIBO issues and also maintained my body's natural gastric process.
Whenever I have a flare up of digestive problems, this product, in combination with garlic and probiotics has helped me restore things without the torment of antibiotics, which destroy your gut lining. I highly recommend staying on an assigned regiment of Candibactin BR for a cure.

Sleep Now

Sleep Now is my new favorite cocktail.

Sleep now is a beautiful tincture that helps de-stress my mind and makes my body feel instantly calm. Sometimes other sleep cocktails can knock you out too quickly or give you a groggy feeling in the morning but not Sleep Now. I love the taste of it, maybe because I have always felt connected to lemon balm and motherwort.
Sleep Now is a soft, flowing medicine that works perfectly. My neighbor introduced me to Farmacopia and I just ended up buying a small lazy susan to display all my lovely tinctures. I use different ones throughout the day and I can honestly say they are making a huge difference in my life. My moods are much more stable now. Thank you so much, Farmacopia!!

Aw!!! This review is so sweet and we love your lazy-susan Farmacopia display!

Son loves them

Love these vitamins. My son looks forward to them everyday and usually reminds me if I forget. They seem to work well. He is a very healthy 4 year old.
