Instant Pot Creamy Asparagus Broccoli Soup

Instant Pot Creamy Asparagus Broccoli Soup

This delightful and nutritious soup is a perfect way to celebrate the spring season. With fresh asparagus and tender broccoli, this creamy soup is light, flavorful, and incredibly satisfying. Here’s how to make it:


  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, tough ends trimmed and cut into pieces
  • 1 head broccoli, florets and stems chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 4 cups vegetable broth or water
  • 1 cup almond milk (or regular milk, half and half, cream, or coconut milk)
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional garnishes: Red pepper flakes, garlic-infused olive oil, fresh herbs, croutons


  1. In your Instant Pot, select the sauté function and heat olive oil. Add minced garlic and sauté for 30 seconds until fragrant.
  2. Stir in almond flour and sauté for a few minutes until lightly golden, ensuring the flour is well-cooked.
  3. Add Italian seasoning and sauté for another minute to release the aroma.
  4. Add chopped asparagus and broccoli to the pot. Sauté for a few more minutes until slightly softened.
  5. Pour in vegetable broth (or water) and season with salt. Mix well.
  6. Close the Instant Pot lid and set to manual high pressure for 5 minutes. Once done, allow for a natural pressure release for 5 minutes, then manually release any remaining pressure.
  7. Carefully open the lid and use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth. Alternatively, let the soup cool slightly and transfer to a stand blender to puree in batches.
  8. Return the pureed soup to the Instant Pot. Stir in almond milk and lemon zest. Bring the soup to a gentle boil using the sauté function, then turn off the heat.
  9. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed, adding more salt and pepper as desired.
  10. Serve the creamy asparagus broccoli soup hot, garnished with a sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper, a drizzle of olive oil, and any optional garnishes you prefer.


  • For a smoother texture, strain the soup after blending to remove any remaining asparagus threads or fibers.
  • This soup can be stored in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Reheat gently on the stovetop or in the microwave before serving.
  • Feel free to customize the soup with your favorite herbs and spices for added flavor. Enjoy this light and delicious soup as a comforting meal or a refreshing appetizer!

Instant Pot Creamy Asparagus Broccoli Soup


Creamy Asparagus Broccoli Soup is the best light and nutritious soup. It is simple to make and delicious to eat. This one-pot soup can be prepared in 30 minutes in the Instant Pot or on the stovetop.



We know spring is here when you start seeing an abundance of fresh asparagus in grocery stores. I love to use asparagus year-round, but asparagus and spring go so well together.

As the winter winds hit, I always look forward to my CSA (community supported agriculture) production box. Initially, it usually has a bunch of freshly picked asparagus and a head of tender broccoli inside.


Using fresh seasonal ingredients is key to healthy meal planning. From early spring and throughout the summer, I love to stir-fry asparagus and broccoli with a variety of ingredients for the side dish.

I also like to make soup from it. There’s still a bit of breezy chill in the spring air, and I feel this soup perfectly accentuates that light mood. It also gives a pleasant feeling of comfort.


You will find that this beautiful soup is hearty and full of flavor but low in calories. And it tastes so much better than canned Creamy Asparagus Soup. The taste is extremely light and fresh, as there are no artificial ingredients in it!


I use some almond flour to thicken the soup. Just one tablespoon of almond flour will eliminate the need to add any thickeners and will not alter the mild flavor of asparagus or broccoli.
You can also use all-purpose flour or rice flour instead of almond flour. This also adds a nice creamy texture and thickness.
Enjoy this delicious, fresh and light soup with the best delicate flavors, but if seasoning is your thing, feel free to add more black pepper, paprika, or a little green pepper as it cooks.
Always choose tender and fresh asparagus. If you find that your asparagus is tough and woody, remove the outer layer, otherwise the soup will pick up stems or threads that are not very pleasant to eat.
Also, remove the bottom ¼ of the asparagus spears before using. Often times, asparagus has a lot of sand trapped between the stems, so be sure to rinse it thoroughly.


Serve this soup with crusty baguettes for a quick bite. For a meal filled with fresh vegetables, serve it with Spring Rolls or Rainbow Vegetables and Noodle Stir-Fry.

I also like to pair it with Creamy Lemon Basil Pasta or Penne Rosa for an easy and healthy meal. It also goes very well with Spring Veggie Curried Quinoa or Vegan Mushroom Risotto.


This delicious soup is well stored. It will thicken a bit after it cools, so before reheating add some water, mix well and then heat.

Store in glass container for 3-4 days. Makes hearty meal prep for school or office lunches. Pair it with a hearty protein salad or craft sandwich for a cafe-style lunch.


If kids are picky eaters, this type of soup puree is an excellent way to add vegetables and fiber to their daily diet. I call it sneaky healthy.

Many times, we find that children are reluctant to chew sautéed vegetables. Puréeing vegetables into cream soup makes your daily vegetable intake easier without much effort.

My kids love this recipe. It is our family favourite. Light and pleasant in taste. You can also adjust the spices and ingredients according to your taste.


The recipe card has exact measurements. Here’s a little introduction to what you need to make this refreshing light soup.

DOUBT – tender fresh stems are preferred. But you can use frozen. I wouldn’t recommend using canned asparagus.
BROCCOLI – You can use the stems as well as the flowers. It works either fresh or frozen.
OLIVE OIL – I prefer extra virgin olive oil
ALMOND FLOUR – Helps thicken the soup and gives it a nice creamy feel. You can use this roux instead of cream to cut calories.
Chopped Garlic
ALMOND MILK – Adding almond milk makes the soup nice and creamy. You can also use regular milk, half and half, cream or coconut milk.
WATER OR VEGETABLE JUICE – I prefer vegetable broth as it adds nice depth.
LEMON ZEST – adds a nice touch of freshness.
OPTIONAL WARRANTIES: Red pepper flakes, olive oil with garlic, fresh herbs or croutons


  • Wash and remove ¼ bottom of asparagus spears. Roughly chop the broccoli and asparagus.
  • Saute the minced garlic in olive oil for 30 seconds. Add the almond flour and sauté for a few minutes so that the flour is well cooked and does not taste raw.
  • Mix in the spices and sauté for a minute to let the aroma begin to release.
  • Add the cut asparagus spears and broccoli. Saute for a few more minutes. Add water (broth) and salt. Mix it well.
  • Close the lid and cook/steam the soup mixture until tender. (about 15 minutes). Turn off the heat.
  • Using a blender of your choice, puree the soup into a smooth paste.
  • Return the soup to the pot. Bring to a gentle boil and add almond milk. Mix well and let it boil gently. Turn off the heat.
  • Garnish it with a little lemon zest, freshly ground black pepper, drizzle some olive oil on it and enjoy it hot.

Using the Immersion Blender v/s Stand Mixer

If you’re using an immersion blender, you’ll notice that some stands or asparagus threads don’t mix properly. I prefer to strain the soup for a smooth texture.

Otherwise, you can let the soup cool completely and then puree it in a blender or stand mixer. This gives the best results.
