Green Bean Soup, this soup tastes like summer time.!

Green Bean Soup, might sound unusual, but...it is easy to make, delicious, and light! Also perfect for the warm autumn days ahead as well as the cold winter on the way. This delicious recipe uses green beans from your own garden, or from the local Farmers Market!

Easy and delicious, Green Bean Soup.

Green beans are so easy to grow! Which is a total bonus for home gardeners. But they are also delicious, as well as versatile. Which means I am always looking for new green bean recipes. This Green Bean Soup caught my eye, and while it is referred to in the cookbook as a summer soup, it can be made year-round. And conveniently this soup is perfect for those green beans that you have safely tucked away in your freezer. 


While it is technically autumn, there are still be many evenings that a light meal will be appreciated. Especially those last few sunshine days that seem to keep everyone out, about, and busy until later than usual. A bowl of soup is perfect for dinner on days like that. Add some whole grain bread and fruit, and you have the perfect, easy-going summer soup dinner.

Easy and delicious Green Bean Soup.

Soup is served year-round in our house, but it is especially nice on chilly days. Which do happen from time to time no matter where you live.  Feel free to add more bacon if desired, or even some corn. While this is technically Green Bean Soup, something tells me that a few more vegetables are not going to cause any trouble!


Ingredients needed for this recipe:

  • green beans
  • broth, stock, or water
  • onion
  • carrots
  • waxy potatoes
  • eggs
  • oil
  • bacon
  • summer savory or thyme
  • fresh parsley
  • cream
  • flour
  • garlic salt
  • salt & pepper

You will also need the following:

  • kitchen knife
  • cutting board
  • measuring cups and spoons
  • stockpot with lid
  • stirring spoon

Now we are ready to begin!


Green Bean Soup, frugal, delicious and easy.

  4. We are at the opposite end of the season spectrum. It is spring and the days are getting longer, but today is a bit wintery. This would be a good dish for us now too.
