Green Bean Soup with Lemon Chive Butter
posted on CT by Wonka Serves 8
Lemon Chive Butter:
1/2 cup chopped fresh chives or green onion
1/3 cup unsalted butter
Grated peel of one lemon
Juice of one lemon
1 small garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp. salt
1 onion, chopped
3 Tbs. unsalted butter
1 1/2 lb. green beans, trimmed and chopped
4 cups chicken stock
1/2 tsp. salt (or more to taste)
1 cup plain yogurt
Freshly ground pepper
To make lemon chive butter, combine the first five ingredients in blender or food processor. Set aside.
To make the soup, cook the onion in the remaining butter until tender and fragrant. Add the beans and cook for about 5 minutes.
Add the chicken stock and salt. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and cook until the beans are tender, about 15 minutes.
Puree the soup in the blender, food processor or food mill. Return to the pot, add the yogurt, heat thoroughly and season with pepper. Serve with a spoonful of lemon chive butter on each serving.
To serve cold, make a little lemon-sour cream to top it with and a sprinkle of chives instead of the lemon-chive-butter.
