I made a big pot of green beans and potato soup today for lunch. Tom was right when he said it must be the Fall like weather that had me making a casserole, now soup. I did use all the green beans and half of the yellow beans from Birdsong in this soup. I found the recipe – fireflyblog.org, and had everything in the house already. So, no grocery store run needed. I like that. The soup was good and pretty healthy.
Recipe: 1 lb green beans ,(I used more & some yellow too) cut into bite size pieces, 4-6 large potatoes, cubed, 4 med carrots, cut in circles, 6 c water or veggie stock (I used chicken), 1 tbsp tomato sauce, 1/2 c milk, 1 tbsp, sour cream,1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp dried parsley, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 2 tbsp Mrs Dash Original Blend Seasoning ( I could not believe I had this, don’t know when I bought it), 1/4 tsp pepper ( I think that was a little too much ) , 1/4 tsp paprika. Saute carrots for 5 min in olive oil, add green beans, potatoes, water or stock, seasonings. Cook for 30 min. Add tomato sauce, cook 15 min. At the end mix sour cream & milk together and stir in. Take off heat.
I did have Raphael’s bread from the farmers market to dip in the broth. Yum!
