A healthy and tasty soup that all will enjoy.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion, finely sliced
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 handful watercress, washed
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 litre vegetable stock
  • 70ml single cream
  • salt & pepper
  • parsley, to garnish

Instructions

  1. Melt the butter and oil in a saucepan and saute the onion and garlic.
  2. Roughly chop the watercress and add to the saucepan and cover for 2 minutes. Then stir in the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes. This creates a rue.
  3. Add the stock slowing and continuing to stir. Bring to the boil gently.
  4. Remove from the heat and blitz with a food processor or hand blender until you get a smooth texture.
  5. Add most of the cream and season with salt and pepper. Gently reheat the soup. Divide into soup bowls.
  6. Swirl with a dash of cream and garnish with parsley or some of the watercress.
