Cook Time
  1. Heat the oil in a pot over a medium flame. Add the onions and cook a few minutes, but don't let them turn brown. Add a little bouillon and cook a couple minutes more.
  2. Cut off the ends of the string beans / green beans and then cut them in half. Wash the beans in a colander.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients, except the peas. Bring to a boil and cook about 5 minutes before adding the peas. Continue to cook for another 5 - 10 minutes (until the vegetables are cooked but still a little firm).
  4. Serve the soup and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

For non-vegan versions, you can add a little Parmesan grated on top.

You can try adding a little pistou / pesto sauce inside for additional flavor, but frankly I don't think it's needed.

You can also add a little cayenne or other red pepper or hot sauce if you want to add a little kick to it.
