Recipe: White and Green Bean Soup

Title: White and Green Bean Soup
Categories: Soups, Beans
Servings: 6

1 1/2 c Dried white beans, Great
-Northern, navy, or baby
6 c Water
3 Cloves garlic, chopped
2 ts Salt
4 c Beef broth
1/4 ts Freshly ground black pepper
1 ts Rosemary, crumbled
2 c Fresh green beans (about 3/4
-lb), cut on the
Diagonal in 1-inch pieces
1 tb Butter
Juice of 1/2 lemon

Wash and pick over the dried beans. Put them into a large saucepan or
kettle with the water and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat, cover,
and allow to stand for 1 hour.

Return to the heat and bring to a boil again. Reduce heat and simmer,
partially covered, for 1/2 hour. Using a heavy fork, mash the garlic with
the salt until no large chunks remain. Add to the saucepan with the beans.
Add the broth, pepper, and rosemary.

Simmer, partially covered, until beans are tender. This can take 15
minutes or as long as 1 hour; timing for beans is hard to predict - keep

Soup can be made ahead to this point, and refrigerated or frozen after
thorough cooling.

Cook the green beans uncovered in 2 uarts of boiling salted water until
they are tender-crisp and bright green. Drain and add to the soup when the
white beans are tender but not mushy. If green beans are not to be added
right away, rinse in cold water to retain color. Stir in the butter and
lemon. Serve at once, while green beans are still bright.

Note: If you want some of the soup pureed, do it before adding the green
beans - the color will be better.

Serves 6 to 8.
