Quick, Easy, Awesome Green Bean Soup

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Mrs Goodall

I think this is the only recipe I actually made out of some low-cal cookbook I bought. This is NOT a recipe for frozen or canned beans, use fresh and using enough garlic is the key. I usually use about 12 - 15 cloves. Like the title says, it's really quick, easy and awesome...I think it's also healthy!! Healthy is not one of my favorite cooking terms, so if it's healthy and I like it, you know it's good!!
