My Mom's Favorite Dill Bean Soup

I remember trying this soup for the first time when I was a little girl. It is a simple recipe with so much flavor and taste! Sometimes I fry up bacon for a garnish, but it is really tasty without anything added to it. Here is the recipe, I usually put what I think looks good in the pot, close to the recipe, so follow what works for you. It is a cheap soup to make and freezes well.

Favorite Dill Bean Soup:

1 cup sliced celery
2 medium carrots shredded
1 clove minced garlic
2 tsp butter

4 cups chicken broth
3 medium potato (3 cups)
2 tsp dry dill

15 oz cannelloni bean (great northern or navy beans)
1cup sour cream or yogurt
1 tbs flour
1/8 tsp pepper
dash of salt

In sauce pan sauté first 4 ingredients. Stir in next
three ingredients and boil.
Reduce heat and simmer about 20-25 minutes.
With the back of spoon (or potato masher), mash potatoes.
Add in beans drained and rinsed. In separate bowl mix last
ingredients and stir into soup. Cook until thick and bubbly.
