Creamy Asparagus, Leek and Parsley Soup

So Delicious Dairy Free Recipe Madness Contest - BadgeWai Leng says, “This delicious and nutritious soup is not only dairy-free but also completely vegan. With the use of So Delicious almond milk, this soup is hearty enough as a dinner side and also light enough as a late night snack.

I don’t consume dairy and I live in cold and windy Chicago which has many soupy days in a year. But ironically, I didn’t come up with this recipe during winter. It was actually born on a suddenly cold day last Spring. This savory soup has a mild leek taste complemented by the earthy flavor of asparagus and the fresh flavor of parsley….it’s a perfect partner for a piece of whole grain toast. I hope the judges will like this recipe as much as I do.”
