Coco - Banana's Creamless Cream of Butter Bean and Herb Soup

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Coco - Banana

This recipe is a light, refreshing soup perfect for spring and summer. I am not one for creamy things, and this is not rich at all. It is adapted from (Butterbean and Herb Cream Soup)

Lovely-looking soup that tastes like spring. I used the defatted broth from yesterday's St. Pat's corned beef instead of water and it added lots of flavor. The herbs made the soup.
