Add broth and potatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until potatoes are barely tender, about 10 minutes. Add green beans and cook until crisp-tender, about 6 minutes.

Cook's Notes

Serve this soup hot on a cool evening or at room temperature on a warm afternoon.

Variations

An herb puree made with parsley and oil adds richness and a shot of vibrant green color to this soup. Try basil in place of parsley to get a different flavor with the same hue.

Just made this last night. I used 4 cups veggie broth and 1 cup chicken broth which gave it true veggie flavor and the chicken added depth. I used English peas instead of green beans - my soup preference. Also added fresh thyme from the garden and added garlic to he puree with salt so it was more like a pesto. I would make this again and change-up the herbs maybe. Perfect for a spring evening and super fast with hubby chopping the leeks and potatoes.
