GF Vegan Wax Bean Soup With Dill

May 22, 2020
This is a typical Hungarian family dish. You can make it for lunch, dinner, in your kitchen or in a garden using a cauldron. Best is with a lot of wax beans (you can use both green and yellow), tasty yellow potato, fresh dill if possible and lots and lots of sour cream. You can eat it as it is, or with fresh white bread—which makes most Hungarian dishes taste their best.

If you want a little more piquant taste, add vegan smoked sausage or hot paprika powder.

1. In a large pot, heat up the oil and sauté the onion and garlic until fragrant.

2. Add the sliced carrots, season with salt and pepper, stir well  and cook them under a lid for about 5 minutes.

3. Then add diced potatoes, was beans and veggie broth. Bring it to a boil, then take back the heat to minimal, and cook until veggies are tender.

4. In a mixing bowl, whisk together vegan sour cream and corn starch with a fork, until you get an even cream. Slowly add 2-3 tbsp of the soup, and mix. (You need to add it slowly because the soup is hot and it will turn the corn starch into balls). Mix well then slowly transfer it in the soup and combine well together.

5. Finish by adding vinegar and fresh dill.
