I gently cook some garlic and onion (small) in butter, add some veg stock and when boiling add a good bunch of water cress. Blend, reheat and season to taste. We have stream water cress and it can get quite stong so it is a good idea to just try it and see what it needs.

I love watercress soup, it is definately worth overplanting for...well done Pol's OH!

Thanks Zoe, do you blend it down & do you thicken it all?

I don't thicken it...but I like thinner soups in summer (its not that thin). I blend it all to a smooth consistency.

OOh, still clearing up & catching up after the hols & OH has decided to have watercress with everything, so not made it yet. Will probably add potato to it for the carbs which I am supposed to have.
