watercress soup

watercress soup

Recipe by chef monika reti
Soups | Serves 2-4

Prep. Time: 25 min.


This watercress soup is an absolute delight. The bright color, delicate smell and smooth taste will wake-up your senses.

Sweat the onion, celery and potato in 2 tablespoons of butter over low heat, in a large covered saucepan, for about 10 - 15 minutes until the potato is soft. Cover with water and bring just to a boil, then remove from heat. Cool slightly and ladle the mixture into a blender until half full. Blend to mix. Add a couple of handfuls of watercress and blend until smooth and bright green. Repeat until all the soup is blended and return to soup pot. Season with salt, pepper and a liberal squeeze of lemon.

To garnish, add a swirl of cream or a dollop a of crème fraiche. To keep it vegan, use coconut milk.

  • 1 onion, peeled and diced
  • 6 celery sticks, diced
  • 1 large or two small potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 package watercress, washed
  • juice of one lemon
