Watercress Soup Recipe
Being a very simple vegetarian dish, this Watercress Soup Recipe is super tasty and full of flavor. In fact, it is so good that if you cook it for someone with moustache, you might want to have a napkin or two close to you – it’s gonna get messy 😂
The good news is: we need the same ingredients that we used for our leek soup, except this time we will use fresh watercress leaves with stems.
In fact, if you’ve been cooking with me for some time now, you know that by learning one of my recipes you are pretty much ready for many other ones. There are a lot of common tricks that you can use, so stick around and you will see what I mean.
And this Potage au Cresson (French for Watercress Soup Recipe) is not an exception.
You can start with the same steps you took making the preceding Potato Leek Soup Recipe (or Potage Parmentier in French). However, this time, before making the puree, stir in the watercress and simmer it for 5 minutes. That’s it. You can blend the soup in a blender and add your spices right after.
Just before serving, I added the cream by spoonfuls. And after that – used it to decorate my dish.
