12 years ago, I decided that there needed to be a specific day, in between Thanksgiving and Christmas, where my friends and I could create and enjoy a lavish feast together. We always cooked a ham, and referred to the event as “Ham Day”. There was always so much delicious food, and we’d play board games, and celebrate our friendship. I think a more appropriate name to call it would have been Friendsgiving 🙂
I’ve always been a fan of taking traditional recipes and putting a bit of a spin on them. Green Bean Casserole is one of my absolute favorite holiday dishes, and a while ago, I decided to make it into a delicious soup!
Green bean casserole soup is every bit as good, if not better, than the casserole. It’s a savory and creamy green bean soup, sprinkled with pan-fried crispy onion strips. It has all of the wonderful tastes of green bean casserole, but with the warmth and comfort of a soup. It’s seriously delicious, and now one of my favorite soups!
Green Bean Casserole Soup
I have two secret ingredients in my green bean casserole soup that gives it a great flavor and makes it easy to prepare. The first is Del Monte® Blue Lake® Cut Canned Green Beans. These green beans are the best because they are flavorful, high quality, and made simply with green beans, water and a dash of salt. I’ve also used fresh green beans and frozen green beans, and can never get them as tender as Del Monte® Blue Lake® Cut Green Beans, so they are perfect for this dish.
My second secret ingredient is Swanson® Chicken broth. It adds such depth of flavor and balances out the green bean casserole soup perfectly. I choose Swanson Chicken Broth because it’s 100% natural, and made with simple, familiar ingredients, and never has artificial flavors, preservatives or MSG. There is always a carton (or two) of Swanson Chicken Broth in my home for impromptu soups! (I seriously LOVE soups)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 small onion, diced
- 1/2 cup mushrooms, diced
- 1 15 oz can green beans, drained
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 2 cups milk
- 2 - 4 tbsp flour
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup milk
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 large onion, cut into thin strips
- oil for frying
- In a large pot, over medium heat, add olive oil, onions, and mushrooms. Saute for 6 - 8 minutes, until softened. Add in green beans and chicken broth. In a small bowl, combine a few tablespoons of the milk with the flour, and whisk until smooth. Add the 2 cups of milk and the flour mixture to the soup, and stir well. Simmer for an additional 10 minutes.
- *If soup is too thin, you can combine another tablespoon of flour and milk, whisking together, then pouring it into the soup. If soup is too thick, you can add a little extra milk, until desired consistency.
- In a pan, over medium-high heat, add 1/2" of oil. Combine flour, milk, salt and pepper in a bowl, and mix until well combined. Add in onion strips, stirring until all onions are coated. Once oil is warm, add in a thin layer of the battered onions, and fry on each side until brown, about 1 - 2 minutes. Remove and repeat until all onion strips are cooked.
- Serve up a bowl of green bean soup, and sprinkle on crispy onion strips.
