#3552 - Fresh Green Bean Soup

(by Shirley McNevich)

3 cups fresh green beans (cut into 1" pieces)
1 TBSP baking soda
1 1/2 cups diced potatoes (peeled before dicing)
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/3 cup crumbled cooked bacon
1 - 10.75oz. can Campbell's cream of chicken soup
3 cups milk
2 tsp. salt (1 tsp. for the green bean water; 1 tsp. for the potato water)
salt and pepper (to your taste)

In a pot of salted water add the green beans and the baking soda--bring to a boil, then cook 8-10 minutes or until beans are almost tender. Drain the green beans and set aside. In a separate pot add the diced potatoes, then barely cover with water and add salt--bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and cook about 20 minutes or until potatoes are almost tender. Remove from heat--DO NOT DRAIN. In a skillet over medium heat add the butter and chopped onions--cook/stir until onions are tender. Add the onions to the potatoes/water--stir. Add cream of chicken soup and milk--stir well. Add the green beans, crumbled bacon and salt/pepper--stir well. Simmer the soup for 30 minutes. Stir well before serving.
