Creamy Asparagus Soup

This is a creamy and satisfying soup that uses cashews instead of dairy to create its luscious flavor. Replace the asparagus with other vegetables such as broccoli, zucchini, or cauliflower. Replace the cashews with other nuts, seeds, or plant-based milks and experiment with adding different diced vegetables, fresh herbs and global seasonings.
