Our runner beans are coming to the end and as there are 16 bags of frozen runner beans in the freezer the ones I picked yesterday were turned into soup.I found this site on my site surfing everything-runnerbeanwith all sorts of interesting recipes for the runner bean.I used the ingredients stated and also added potatoes and some leek, all from the plot.I made a big pot of it last night and reheated it today just adding some milk and freshly cut parsley.
Runner Bean Soup
500grms runner beans
1 large onion
1 large carrot
700mls vegetable stock
salt & pepper to taste.
Top & tail the runner beans,removing stringy sides
Chop into slices with the onion and carrot
Heat butter in pan and add vegetables.Cook until soft and the carrot is translucent not browned
Add stock,cover and simmer for about 30 minutes
I used a hand blender to puree but left it quite chunky with bits of veg.
Matron over on down at the allotment blog has posted her Dog Blog featuring some of our four legged friends and my own dog HRH Cavalier King Charles Sam got a spot in it.Do pay a visit and meet some quirky and clever canines. It is a terrific idea and Thank you Matron for taking the time to put it together.
This is Sam investigating the bag of veg which came in from the allotment yesterday, hoping something might smell good enough to eat.Sam will soon be 13 years old and is deaf and slowing down a little.Read how Sam came to live with me here
Disappointed with the contents of the bag I am sure he is wondering why I never bring home one of these rabbits I am always complaining about! Sam is camera shy and usually just as I press the camera shutter he turns his head.I thought it was just Sam but on reading Matron's blog a lot of the dogs seem to be camera shy!
