1 cup vegetable or chicken stock
Contact information ( * required )
1 teaspoon oil
¼ cup chopped onion
1 cup light cream or milk
2 dashes hot pepper sauce

Wash and trim the green beans and cut into 1-inch pieces.
In a sauce pan, bring the broth to a low boil over medium heat; add green beans and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a blender or food processor and purée until smooth.
Heat the oil in a large pot and saute the onion until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the light cream, pureed beans and spices; taste and adjust as needed. Add Marmite to taste.
