Meatless Green Bean Soup, Very Simple Recipe (Video)

During the year I often make this green bean soup because it cooks quickly and easily. I use fresh green bean when it its season, if not, I choose the frozen one.

How to prepare this recipe

Actually this is a recipe just like my grandmother cooked it, and of course my mom, who learned cooking from my grandmother. This soup takes me back to this times, as it tastes like childhood. 

In addition to green beans, I also used onions. They tasted great, slightly sweet. Do not give up parsley, or do not replace with/or thyme and dill, the soup will have a different taste.

So here’s how I make green bean soup
If you like meatless soup recipes or are fasting, I recommend this simple green bean soup.
