A rich and creamy comfort food that the whole family will love – this Keto Instant Pot Asparagus Soup is ready in less than 30 minutes and packed with nutrients!
Keto IP Asparagus Soup
One of the things other parents tell me is most challenging about eating keto (or any type of diet) is that they worry about what they can feed the rest of the family.
In our house, we only prepare one dinner, so we look for options that everyone will enjoy taste-wise and that meet all of our needs. You don’t have to become a short-order cook to be successful with Keto!
Believe it or not, asparagus is one of the vegetables that both of our older girls like. That’s why this Keto Asparagus Soup is perfect for a family meal.
It may be Keto (so it keeps mom and dad happy), but it provides so many wonderful nutrients for the kids. We grown-ups enjoy the soup as-is, and make a pot of rice to serve with the soup for our kids.
It’s an easy, comforting meal that keeps everyone happy! Win-win!

For extra flavor, try making your asparagus soup with our Instant Pot Chicken Bone Broth!
I prefer to use natural release, but you can use the quick release if you are pressed for time. Just be aware that since this is a soup and there is a lot of liquid in your Instant Pot, there is more of a chance for splattering with quick release.
Use caution when transferring your soup from the Instant Pot to your blender, as it will be hot.
We’ve tried a few different blenders and by far the Vitamix outperforms them all (more than one of our previous blenders burned up doing normal food prep). You can get a really good deal on a refurbished Vitamix – that’s how we bought ours and it’s worked like a dream!
