In France, «flageolet» (pr. flah-joh-LAY) beans are often served with lamb. I always keep one can of this small creamy bean in my pantry to be able to fix myself a tasty soup in no time.

Ingredients

1 1/2 tbsp butter, unsalted 20 g
1 shallots, finely chopped 40 g
3 cups green kidney / flageolet beans (canned), drained and rinsed 750 mL
1 tbsp curry powder 9 g
1 1/2 cup chicken broth 375 mL
1 1/2 cup water 375 mL
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]
4 tsp cream 15% [optional] 20 mL

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.

Method

  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the finely chopped shallot and sauté 2-3 min until translucent, taking care not to let it burn.
  2. Drain and rinse the flageolet beans, then add them to the saucepan. Stir in the curry powder, broth and water. Bring to a boil, cover, and cook 2-3 min. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Purée the soup in a blender, then ladle it into bowls and serve. If desired, garnish each bowl with a dollop of cream.

I cheated a bit and used 2 cups of vegetable bouillon and one cup of water, omitting the salt and pepper. Also, I found that while cream (actually, I used homogenized milk so I could give it to my 1 year old who LOVES this soup) adds a nice, creamy, velvety texture, it is not absolutely necessary. In fact, I prefer it without! Delicious.
