Soupe Au Pistou
Yield: 6 Servings

1/2 cup dried haricot beans, soaked overnight
1 onion, finely chopped
5 oz pumpkin, chopped
1 stalk celery, sliced
2 small leeks, chopped
2 baby turnips, diced
6 oz small green beans, cut into 1-inch pieces
5 oz shelled broad beans or lima beans
3 ripe tomatoes, peeled and chopped
2 oz fine vermicelli
salt and freshly ground pepper
1 handful basil leaves
3 garlic cloves
6 tbsp olive oil
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Drain haricot beans. Put into a large saucepan with onion, pumpkin,
if using, and 7 1/2 cups water. Bring to a boil and boil rapidly
10 minutes. Cover and simmer 1 hour.

Add celery, leeks and turnips and cook 10-15 minutes. Add remaining

tablespoons of hot soup.

Pour the soup into warmed bowls, spoon a little pistou into each
