German Green Bean Soup/ Gruene Bohneneintopf -Easy Delicious Meal
I love a good Eintopf.. one pot meal.. and my favorite would have to be German Green Bean Soup or Gruene Bohneneintopf. This easy and delicious meal satisfies even the heartiest of appetites. It’s loaded with Green Beans, potatoes and even beef (and a little bacon). Along with a few slices of bread, it’s the perfect meal for cool nights. And when I put it on the table here at home, even the finicky eaters clean their plates.
The recipe I use for German Green Bean Soup / Gruene Bohneneintopf is loose… more a guideline. I learned to cook from my mother and Oma, and they use the … “Add ingredients, taste, adjust for flavor”... method of cooking. Traditionally a German Bohnensuppe (Bean soup) uses Bohnenkraut (Bohnenkraut is Summer Savory), but I prefer using Thyme because I like the flavor, and it grows in my garden. (If you have Summer Savory, go ahead and use it instead.
I use the words Eintopf (one-pot meal) and Suppe (soup) sort of interchangeably for this recipe. It’s a hearty soup, and when served with a slice of bread, you have a complete meal.
