Instructions

  1. Heat the coconut oil in a large stockpot over medium heat and add the shallots and garlic. Cook a minute or two until fragrant and then add the asparagus, mint, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Cook the asparagus 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. If using fresh peas, add the peas, beans and broth and bring to a boil. If using frozen peas, add them later when you add the spinach.
  2. Lower the heat to a simmer and cover the pot. Cook, covered, 5-6 minutes, until vegetables are softened. Uncover and stir in the spinach and lemon juice. Cook another minute or two, uncovered, until spinach is wilted.
  3. Puree the soup with an immersion blender or transfer the mixture to a blender and blend until smooth. Add the siggi's Coconut 2% Skyr and continue to blend until smooth. Taste and adjust salt and pepper as needed.
  4. Pour the soup into 4 bowls and garnish with desired toppings.
