Asparagus and Basil Soup
2 bunches of asparagus (see note above)
1 clove garlic
1 C coconut milk (unsweetened)
3 T coconut flour
1 T tamari
sea salt and pepper to taste
Handful of fresh basil – I used the Genovese variety.
In your Vita-Mix, combine all ingredients except basil. Blend on high for about 2-3 minutes until smooth. Once smooth, toss in basil. Using the variable speed, set blend on medium low and blend for about 20-30 seconds (leaving a bit of texture to the basil).
Garnish with lemon zest, basil and a dash of cayenne.
