The green bean soup can be cooked at any time during the year, both in summer when you find fresh green beans, and in winter when we can use frozen beans. I will show you the version with frozen green beans, cooked in Hungarian style with paprika and with a little thickening, as we like the soup to be a little more consistent.

If you have frozen green beans at home, you can also try a salad recipe such as green bean salad with garlic, a wonderful dish.
