White asparagus soup

Thought about posting this because it’s the time of the year and you might need an addition for your Easter dinner!
Usually I don’t like white asparagus that much but the recipe by Elle Republic totally convinced me. It’s without any milky ingredient but a cashew base which seemed to be interesting to try out.
I just translated the recipe for you below and did some tiny modifications to make it OMS friendly.
