This is a great watercress soup recipe. I've been looking for something similar to one my Mum made up years ago and most other recipes have potato in them, which makes them far too filling. I've tried this a couple of times now and my only amendments would be a) using a vegetable bouillon - I used homemade chicken stock the first time and it was too fatty and b) using whipping cream as it's a slightly lighter texture. It also needs quite a lot of seasoning to bring out the flavour, which I prefer to add at the cooking stage. All in all a really tasty soup which is as nice cold as hot. Thanks!
I purchased watercress because I have never used it before and wanted to try something new. I added dried basil, garlic powder and sriracha after stirring in the watercress to add some flavor. This was very easy and I will try it again.
