Add the green beans in and allow to cook a few more minutes.  Keep an eye on the fluid, if the risotto starts to absorb some of the chicken stock, add more to compensate.  I ended up adding another 1 1/2 cups of stock to compensate.
In the oven bake two garlic/butter french bread loaves.
Spoon soup into bowl and add thick slices of bread to eat with the dish.
NOTE:  The original recipe came from a magazine called Eatwell 101 healthy recipes. Winter 2015,  I modified the recipe further to fit our dietary taste. :)
