Green Bean Soup

Servings: 6-8

  • 2 tbs. butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped white onion
  • 1 (14 oz.) can artichoke bottoms, drained and chopped
  • 1 (27 oz.) can Glory Foods Green Beans, drained
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup vegetable juice
  • 1 tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream, warmed
  • freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup toasted pine nuts*
  • freshly chopped parsley


  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan, and add onion and artichoke; saute over low heat for 4-5 minutes.
  2. Add Glory Foods Green Beans and chicken broth; simmer for 15 minutes; remove from heat. Process mixture (2 or 3 batches) in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  3. Return to saucepan and stir in vegetable and lemon juices; simmer an additional 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cream; season to taste with salt & pepper.
  4. To serve, divide between cups or soup bowls. Grate cheese over soup and sprinkle with pine nuts & parsley.

*To toast pine nuts, place in a small skillet and fry for a minute or two, stirring every 20 seconds or so. Pine nuts have a high fat content and burn easily, so watch them carefully.
