Prebiotics are a form of fiber and are basically food for the good bacteria living in the intestinal tract. If you're taking a probiotic supplement or eating probiotic-rich foods to balance the bacteria in your gut, you also need to be eating lots of prebiotic-rich foods. Onions, garlic, and asparagus are at the top of the list for prebiotic-rich foods. Conveniently, they taste great together and make this soup just as nutritious as it is delicious!
Another reason you'll love this recipe is because it only takes 30 minutes from start to finish! It's inexpensive, easy, and a wonderful meal prep option if you make lunches ahead of time. Even though I work at home I like to make this soup on Sundays and divide it into 3 pint size mason jars. It's always nice to have quick & healthy meals ready for me!
