  2. In a large soup post, saute onions in olive oil at medium heat for 2 minutes. Add asparagus, season with salt and lemon pepper and cook, covered, for 10 minutes.
  3. Add broth or water, bring to a boil (at this point, you would add the bouillon, if using), cover and simmer for about 25 minutes, until the asparagus are very tender
  4. Transfer to a blender, add GO Veggie! Vegan Cream Cheese and lemon juice, and blend until smooth (you might need to so this in a couple of batches). Note: Be very careful while blending the hot soup because it might splash!
  5. Pour soup back into pot and simmer covered for 5-7 minutes.
  6. For the garnish:
  7. Place flour, almond milk and panko in 3 separate bowls. Season with some salt and lemon pepper
  8. Coat the asparagus tips in flour. Dip in almond milk and coat with panko bread crumbs. Heat olive oil in a non stick skillet, arrange the tips in one single layer and cook at medium heat for 2-3 minute until golden brown, turning them over half way through
