My Granny always cooked this wonderful, light soup in early fall after she harvested the last of the green beans from her garden. Garnish it with a dollop of sour cream and another tablespoon of fresh dill for an elegant first course or simple summer dinner. This soup is always more flavorful after it rests a day or two in the fridge.
