Traditional Mennonite Green Bean Soup

READY IN: 1hr 20mins




  • In a large stock pot, add vegetables to broth and simmer until vegetables are well done, about an hour.
  • Half an hour before serving, add finely shredded parsley and savory, which has been tied for easy removal. (I usually just throw a spice ball with this stuff in it along with the veggies and leave it in there for the full hour).
  • Remove herbs and add 2 to 3 tablespoons sour cream. Combine and serve.
  • Or, instead of adding sour cream, just serve with cream or milk at the table.
