soupe de baraquets

green bean soup

Making a big pot of green bean soup

What to do with the tough green beans that you forgot to pick? Make them into soupe de baraquets, with potatoes, ham, onions and tomatoes and boil it for a long time (or put it in a pressure cooker). Then take out the vegetables, thicken the broth with tapioca, and mix together and serve hot.
