Creamy Yellow Bean Soup with Mushrooms and Dill is an Easter European-inspired comfort food. However, my recipe is a healthier version, yet equally satisfying and delicious.
You may think that eating soup in the summertime is not the greatest idea. However, I can assure you, this soup can be eaten either warm or cold. Aside from that, yellow beans are available only at this time of year.
However, if you cannot find yellow string beans, you may try my other recipes, for example, VEGGIE CHOWDER or you can visit my SOUPS & STEWS page. They are equally delicious and I am sure you will like them.
However, I must admit, I don’t have that many soup recipes on my blog. But don’t worry, I am planning to add a few more in the near future. I love soups and I have some great recipes! You will not be disappointed, I can promise you that!
By the way, what is your favorite soup? I actually grew up on my grandma’s soups in Slovakia, therefore, many of my recipes are based on the memories from my childhood. Even this Creamy Yellow Bean. Oh, if you are wondering what the difference between yellow string beans and green is, there is not much. nonetheless, the yellow bean is more suitable for this soup.
I would genuinely love to hear about your favorites, likes, and dislikes. Thank you for visiting and have a great week.
