6 cups water
salt & pepper
1 pound fresh trimmed green beans, cut into 2-inch pieces
2 TBSP unsalted butter
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 pound russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp sweet paprika
1/4 cup heavy cream


1. Add the water and 1/2 tsp salt to a medium size saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the green beans and cook the beans for 3 minutes. Turn off the heat and transfer the beans to a bowl using a slotted spoon reserving the cooking water in the pan, set aside.

2. Melt the butter in a dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes.

3. Add the potatoes, garlic, paprika, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp pepper. Stir to combine.

4. Stir in 4 cups of the reserved cooking water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.

5. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup (or puree in batches in a stand blender or food processor).

6. Stir the green beans into the pureed soup then stir in the heavy cream. Simmer over medium-low heat until heated through.

7. Season soup with salt & pepper to taste.
