Last summer, I took a good resolution: eat more « green food » -you know, this things named « vegetables » :) - They 're not really my best friends... but it's healthy so i try this recipe (ok I'm cheating, the beans are not vegetables but starches, but it's a beginning, nop ?^^) For those cold and rainy days, this soup is perfect to warm you up. And the alliance of beans and goat cheese is delicious! Feel free to use frozen beans, it's (almost) as good and nutriments are preserved!
In these photos, I used the pretty dishes Astier de Villatte. I love the simplicity and elegance of their ceramics!
