Haricot Bean Soup

2 heaped breakfast-cups beans
2 qts. water
3 tablespoons chopped parsley or 1/2 lb. tomatoes
nut or dairy butter size of walnut,
1 tablespoon lemon juice.

For this soup use the small white or brown haricots. Soak overnight in 1 qt. of the water. In the morning add the rest of the water, and boil until soft. It may then be rubbed through a sieve, but this is not imperative. Add the chopped parsley, the lemon juice, and the butter. Boil up and serve. If tomato pulp is preferred for flavoring instead of parsley, skin the tomatoes and cook slowly to pulp (without water) before adding.
