Green Bean Velvet Soup has the velvety smoothness of a classic French velouté sauce and the comfort-food flavor of green-bean casserole. It’s healthier and easier than either one, though. No butter, no canned soup, no canned fried onion rings, no baking or stirring, yet a rich and creamy flavor! The roasted flavor comes from toasted bread and roasted cashews, with extra umami from the mushrooms.
Green Bean Velvet Soup dishes up elegantly but costs just $1.81 for a one-cup serving, using organic ingredients.
Blend just six ingredients for satisfying soup in less than ten minutes of active time. Serve it plain or with a dollop of cashew yogurt. Add a scoop of hummus and some roasted veg for a complete and quite fancy-looking meal (see note below the recipe). Serve with crusty bread to mop up every bit.
