Day 122: Quick Green Bean Soup

Look familiar? It might for it's a green bean-version of last week's Quick Broccoli Soup and yesterday's Quick Cauliflower Soup. (A combined recipe is posted here.)

Yes, I'm seriously addicted to this easy soup -- bigger batches are in order!

Today's cook-lunch-while-working-in-the-other-room pot was made with a bag of frozen beans and a half-gone bag of freezer-burned corn.

It was good -- but not delicious like the broccoli and cauliflower renditions, perhaps because:
  • of using frozen vegetables?

  • beans aren't so conducive to soup?

    (Sure there's BEAN soup but who's heard of GREEN BEAN soup? Okay, of course, Google has. It found 7500 references -- but 42x that for bean soup. Point made.)

  • of using homemade (and thus less salty) chicken stock that needed using up?
If history's a guide, answers will be forthcoming.
