Haricot/Green Bean Soup

READY IN: 45mins
Top Review by flat footed fairy.

I loved this! It was soooo easy to make and best of all it was filling. However, I found it a little too thick and creamy so I substituted the milk with 1 part water. Adding basil instead of parsley also gave it a nice twist. I also think it's best to add the milk gradually or else lumps will form, and to heat it a little longer after adding the beans so that the beans can absorb the flavour of the soup (n vice versa))
