Instant Pot Asparagus Soup

This is a great soup! Hot or cold, it satisfies the soul. It's great cold in the summer, and in the cooler months it's delicious hot. Either way, you can make it for a dinner party to appear fancier than you are!

  • Be bold and use leftover asparagus from your holiday gathering, or just buy it fresh. Since asparagus is a seasonal vegetable, you can also just use frozen bags, which work well, too.
  • Cooking with a pressure cooker is fast, efficient, and delicious. I use my Instant Pot almost daily. This recipe works fantastically well in it.
  • If you don't like your soup spicy, don't use the cayenne. In my house, we love spicy food, so we frequently add cayenne to soups.
  • This recipe is very forgiving, as well. If you don't measure everything precisely, it won't really matter.
  • Instant Pot asparagus soup is also budget-friendly. You can find all the ingredients you need at your local supermarket.
  • We prefer to use the fresh ingredients when we can, but if you don't always have access to that, it does not matter—the soup will still be delicious.
  • Adjust the ingredients to your taste.


  • 2 lbs aparagus, fresh or frozen
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • 4-6 celery stalks, diced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 4 cups chicken broth (or 4 cups water and 4 bouillon cubes)
  • 1 cup heavy cream (or 1 cup milk and 2 tablespoons corn starch)
  • 2 unpeeled Idaho potatoes, cubed
  • 1-2 tablespoons thyme

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 12 min
Ready in: 32 min
Yields: 6-8


  1. Dice and chop up your onion, celery, garlic, and potatoes.
  2. Set your Instant Pot to "saute." Add the oil or butter, onion, garlic, and celery. Saute for about 2-3 minutes until aromatic.
  3. Add your spices: pepper, salt, thyme, and optional cayenne pepper.
  4. Add the potato and asparagus.
  5. Add your chicken broth (or substitute water and bouillon cubes).
  6. Set the pot for 8 minutes on high pressure. When this is done, do a quick release.
  7. Add the heavy cream (or substitute milk and corn starch).
  8. Now use a stick blender to blend it all really well and smooth.
  9. Serve hot or cold. Enjoy!

      Thanks for the recipe, I recently got myself an instant pot and am just starting to release some of its potential. I’ll give this recipe a go since I can get hold of asparagus pretty cheap.
