You might need to buy:
  • dried basil
  • Cooking spray
  • frozen green beans
  • tomato paste
  • dried oregano
  • kosher salt

By all means, use 1 Tablespoon each of fresh rosemary and thyme (which are both easy to grow) if you have it.

—A bowl of this soup, a nice green salad, and a loaf of warm, homemade bread (some beyond easy beer bread, perhaps?) make a well-rounded meal. If you’re serving people who must have meat every time they eat, a plate of nice hearty sausages, such as bratwurst or kielbasa, could be grilled or pan-fried and served along with the soup. Or thickly slice the sausages on a diagonal and set several slices right on top of each bowl of soup.

—Make it a celebration of spring. For those fortunate enough to have access to the first vegetables of the season, you might consider making this recipe using half the beans and twice the number of vegetables—all baby versions. I haven’t tried this yet, but I imagine that it would be splendid. You might only want to puree 1/3 of it, so that the chunks of individual vegetables remained more visible.
