Nourishment Notes

Creamy Soup

Roasting the asparagus and blending all ingredients may be more tolerable for most people while experiencing a flare.


Asparagus tips are better tolerated than the full asparagus stalk. Asparagus contains folate a nutrient that can become low during flares with crohn’s and ulcerative colitis.

Remission Remix

  • Asparagus

    Roast the entire asparagus spear, not just the tips. This will provide additional beneficial fiber to the dish.
