How to Make Fresh Green Bean Soup
- Add scoops of this thick roux to the pot of boiling veggies. It makes a cool sizzling noise as it goes in. Simmer in between additions to see how thick it is getting. Stop when it is as thick as you like.
- Now season the soup with whatever seasonings you like and let is simmer another 15 minutes or so. I generally use salt and pepper, maybe a bit of cumin or curry and some hot pepper flakes.
