Green bean soup

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
½ cup Butter
2 mediums Onions, diced
2 cups Fresh cut green beans
½ cup Flour
5 cups Bouillon
1 pint Sour cream

Meat for flavoring: ham hocks, leftover roast, stew or ground beef, and/or mashed potatoes Salt, pepper, garlic powder, bouquet garni Additional flour if needed

Melt the butter in a large sauce pan and brown the onions. Add green beans and simmer for five to ten minutes. Stir in flour and cook five more minutes. Gradually add bouillon, stirring constantly so that the flour doesn't lump. Reduce heat and simmer for one hour. Add meat and/or mashed potatoes if desired. All are extremely good. Season to taste and continue to simmer slowly. Just before serving, mix a little of the soup with the sour cream until the cream becomes rather liquid. If the soup seems too thin, add a little flour to the sour cream mixture. Add this to the soup. Serve with salad and garlic bread.
