What's this?

Smoky, creamy, and all kinds of delicious. Lightly seasoned asparagus is smoked on the Traeger before getting blended into a rich and flavorful soup.

Ingredients

  • Pound Asparagus Spears

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil

  • To Taste salt and pepper

  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced

  • 1 Tablespoon butter

  • 1 1/2 Cup cream

  • 2 Stalk Raw Asparagus, Shaved

Steps

  • 1

    When ready to cook, set grill temperature to 180℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Super Smoke if available.
  • 2

    Drizzle 1 pound of asparagus with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place directly on the grill grate and smoke for 20-30 minutes. Taste along the way to assess smoke level pulling earlier if needed.

    Place 1 Tbsp butter in a saucepan and melt over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and saute for 2-3 minutes or until onion is translucent.

    Remove asparagus from the grill and cut into 1” pieces. Place asparagus in the pan with the onions and add stock and cream. Bring to a simmer.
