French Green Bean Soup

This turned out to be a most delicious soup...better than I had expected given the simple ingredients. The recipe comes from a new cook book by Crescent Dragonwagon "Bean by Bean". You begin by mixing together finely chopped garlic and butter.

Chop a whole red onion.

Chop celery.

Saute the onions and celery in a large pot.

Add potatoes, fresh green beans, and vegetable stock.

Cook until bean and potatoes are tender. Puree the soup in a blender or a hand held mixer.

Add a dollop of the garlic butter and freshly cracked pepper. It was delicious and nutritious!


  1. This recipe sounds very yummy! Do you think I could substitute a different type of bean? Thanks.
