Wash and soak the 'butter beans' the night before. Add fresh filtered water, the bay, bouquet garni and pepper, cover and boil. Scoop off possible froth and discard. Turn down the heat and cook for 30 min. Add the peeled bunya nuts and cook for another 25 min.

Fry the onion in olive oil golden. Add the leek, the carrots and then the beans. Fry for 15 min and stir. Add the content to the soup pot. Add the zucchini bits and the garlic and some of the parsley. Cook for another 10 min. and remove the bouquet garni.

Both the beans and bunya nuts will sink to the bottom of the pot. Stir before serving, sprinkle with parsley and serve with a baguette.
