Note: green peas (along with other legumes in pods like snap peas and green beans) are a generally accepted food in the paleo community, so long as it remains an occasional food.

Fry the bacon in a large, wide-bottomed pan until crispy, remove with a slotted spoon and set aside to cool. When cool chop into small pieces.

Saute the garlic and onion in the same pan (you want to get them sizzling in the leftover bacon fat) for a few minutes until the onion turns golden. Stir in the asparagus and peas.
Pour in the stock and bring to a boil. Cover and turn down the heat. Let simmer for 20 minutes.
Take the pan off the heat and, using a hand blender, process the soup until smooth. Season according to taste and stir in the milk/cream if using.
Stir in the bacon bits and serve.
