Hi, this is from Vegetarian Soup Cuisine by Jay Solomon.  I just left out
the oil.  I like his cookbooks a lot.

Portugese Green Bean Tureen
4 servings

1 mediuim onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups water
2 cups diced white potatoed (peeled if desired)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cups green beans, trimed and cut into 1/2 inch pieces (about 1/2 pound)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Dry sautee onions and garlic until they begin to sweat and are fragrant.
Add water, potatoes and salt and pepper, bring to a simmer, cook for 20
minutes.  Stir in green beans and cook for 10 - 15 minutes more.  Turn off
heat, stir in fresh herbs and let stand for 10 minutes.

Pour soup into a blender or food processor and process for 5 - 10 seconds
until smooth. Serve with warm, crusty bread.
