Rhubarb, asparagus, and spinach show up early in the farmers’ markets in Minnesota. This sweet and savory soup uses all three together, a true tribute to spring’s bounty.

about Agrodolce Rhubarb Soup
The Italian term Agrodolce translates to bitter-sweet in English. It refers to combinations like vinegar and honey or, in this dish, rhubarb and sugar. What could be better than using rhubarb? Its natural tartness demands some sweetness. But, in this case, it takes the bitter edge off; it’s not enough sugar to put the soup into the dessert category.
There’s a lot to love about this soup. For one thing, the color is gorgeous. It’s quick to put together and unusual. And it is a perfect menu item for early June in Minnesota because all three key ingredients, rhubarb, asparagus, and spinach, are readily available at the market. Green onions make an excellent substitution for the shallots, by the way.
Usually, I serve this soup with a salad or as a starter to a meal. It’s delicious hot or at room temperature.
