This is a Weight Watchers recipe. In the past I have found their soup recipes to be lacking in any flavour. Well they are onto a winner in my view with this one.

1 1/2 points per serving

Serves 4


410g can white haricot beans, drained and rinsed

2-3 spring onions, sliced

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 litre hot vegetable stock

1 courgette, cut into ribbons

125g fine green beans, trimmed and halved

100g peas

1/2-1 mild green chilli, sliced thinly

Handful of chopped fresh flat leaf parsley

4 tsp green pesto

Fresh basil leaves and chopped red chilli, to garnish


1. Place the haricot beans, spring onion and garlic in a heavy-based nonstick pan and add the stock.

2. Bring to the boil, then add the courgette and green beans. Simmer for 3 minutes.

3. Add the peas, green chilli and parsley and cook for 2-3 minutes until the peas are tender.

4. Divide among 4 bowls and top each with 1 tsp pesto, a few fresh basil leaves and a little chopped red chilli.

Comments: This is probably best served straight away, I put it in the fridge overnight and it still tested good the next day. I don’t think it’s suitable for freezing.

    Hi Grainne,
    tried this recipe on Monday – it really is very tasty, but I must admit I was a bit surprised by the color of the soup – I did not expect it to be that green.
    Did it turn out green for you as well?
    By the way, will have the left overs tonight 🙂

      Hi Mareke,

      Yep it’s green. It looks a bit mad but tastes very good. It doesn’t look too good when you leave it in the fridge overnight, but once you stir it through it’s fine.

      This one I think is best served straight away.
