“This is from the original Enchanted Broccoli Forest cookbook. It is an incredibly delicious fresh soup! It is ridiculously simple and is specifically designed for very, very fresh green beans - straight from a garden, if possible. The simplicity assumes that the beans are delicious in and of themselves. If you try this with inferior (old, tough, out-of-season) or frozen beans, the results can't be guaranteed.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Steam the green beans until just tender and bright green.
  2. Use a blender to purée the beans in the milk until very smooth.
  3. Return the purée to the pot and season to taste.
  4. heat very gently (don't boil it) just before serving.
  5. You can also chill the soup and serve it cold.
  6. Top each serving with a scattering of minced fresh herbs, if desired.
  7. Note: You can use half rich chicken stock and half milk- or even cream- for a more intense soup.
