I had a ton of Green beans from the garden, seems like that is what most everybody else had. I didn't have shallot's or potato's and I didnt feel like sitting in traffic for that. SO.. what I did was, omit the shallot, added a home grown white onion.. and I didnt have potato's.. I changed that for french fries.. It's awesome! No one will ever know.. if you don't tell them! :-} I also added home grown chili's for a lil "pep".... good for the soul! Thanks for sharing this recipe.. super easy and tastes great! Cheers!

I had a bag of home-grown green beans that I'd left on the plants too long and they'd gone a bit tough, so I decided to look for a soup recipe to use them up. This recipe was so easy, I blended thoroughly to make sure there were no tough bits left, and the result was absolutely delicious!

How good is this - it had me hunting though my reviews - my cookbooks and finally found the well used copy in my recipe drawer with last seasons recipe finds. Knew I loved bean soups fresh and dried but this is the first recipe for cream of green bean I've made or tasted. Before I do anything else taking time to review - can't chance losing this one! Made as posted, it is one terific soup using either the dried savory or the fresh snipped in. One of the benefits of reviewing - the recipe is always there when you need it! Thank you, look forward to making pots of creamed green bean soup again this summer.
