Cooking with Basic Food Storage: Delicious soup using white beans

I sampled this soup at our stake preparedness fair last weekend. It was absolutely delicious and is a great way to use beans from your food storage.

Potato Bean Soup
1/2 C sliced celery
3 medium carrots, shredded
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp butter
1 onion, chopped
4 medium potatoes, unpeeled and cut
2 tsp dried dill or fresh
1 15 oz. can of white beans
1/2 c sour cream or plain nonfat yogurt
1 T flour
4-5 c chicken broth

Cook celery, carrots, onion and garlic in hot butter for 4 minutes. Stir in broth, potatoes and dill. Bring to a boil and simmer for 25 minutes. Lightly mash 1/2 of the potatoes. Add drained beans. In a small bowl, stir together sour cream, flour, with a little salt and pepper. When mixed together, stir into soup, continue stirring and cook until the soup thickens.
