When my friend and yoga teacher Catriona first mentioned green bean soup with Marmite, I have to admit I balked.
First of all, there’s no real need to make soup out of green beans. After all, why mush up something that’s meant to be served with a bit of snap? (My favorite is to blanche green beans and then saute them in butter with shallots, chopped hazelnuts and rosemary. Amazing!)
As to the Marmite, I really didn’t know exactly what it was, but it didn’t sound good.
