Put the coconut oil on a pot, add the onion, the garlic, the asparagus, the fennel and the celery, all cut in small pieces and let them stir-fry for 5 minutes.  Add the broth and let it cook for 10 minutes in medium-low heat. Add the rocket and the spinach and remove the pot from the heat. Add the juice and lime zest and blend everything with a hand blender until you get a creamy texture. If necessary, add more broth. Serve very hot with sprinkled seeds.
