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 tbsp butter, unsalted 14 g
1/2 shallots, finely chopped 20 g
1 2/3 cup green kidney / flageolet beans (canned), drained and rinsed 420 mL
1/2 tbsp curry powder 5 g
1 1/2 cup vegetable broth, low-sodium 375 mL
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]
2 tsp cream 15% [optional] 10 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 and broth. 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.
