Of course, onions will be lonely without good company, and we will add to it also green, also long and also very useful string beans. Together they will make a wonderful and harmonious taste pair. And in addition, sprinkle our soup with fresh leaves of mint and serve on a table with golden, crispy croutons. A real, one hundred percent May soup for a family dinner is ready!
A bunch of green onions, about a gram in three hundred weight, wash and cut arbitrarily, still chop it with a blender.
Heat olive oil in a suitable saucepan (leave a little for croutons) and put our chopped onion and frozen green beans in the oil, and it is not necessary to defrost it. Stir and simmer vegetables for a minute.
Pour the broth to the vegetables, optionally vegetable or chicken, and bring our soup to a boil. Then reduce the heat and cook the soup for about five to seven minutes, the beans should be pierced with a knife. Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste.
Grind the finished soup with a submersible blender into a fairly homogeneous puree.
Cut the ciabatta or baguette into slices and grease them with olive oil using a brush. Brown the toasts in the toaster or under the grill of the oven. Optionally, grate croutons lightly with a clove of garlic or sprinkle with chopped green garlic. Serve soup with croutons, sprinkled with fresh mint leaves. Let this combination not scare you, mint goes well with legumes.
