Quick and Easy Green Bean Potato Soup

August 14, 2011

After 2 1/2 days away from the garden, I just knew there were plenty of veg waiting for me. Like a true farmer, I was in the rows, before even unpacking. Night was falling and I couldn't wait another mintue. The green beans were finally ready! My baby tried them for the first time, and the 4 year old showed her how to find the beans hiding under the leaves. It was sweet to see my budding gardeners. 

I have a wonderful childhood dish that my mom made for us. This Green Bean Potato Soup, was our go-to meal after a long day of sledding or ice skating in upstate New York. It was simple and delicous, making it a soup that was hearty enough to chase aways winter chill, but easy enough to assemble after an exhausting day out in the cold. 

I now make this for my family, but don't keep it just in the winter recipe file. It is delicious when made with fresh green beans from the garden.
