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.

Easy or Not?

Sounds easy? Great. Sounds confusing? Don’t worry – I’ve got all the steps for this recipe written down in the ‘Steps’ section below. Let me know how it goes please. What did you like? And what was the most challenging part for you?

And feel free to share this super easy but incredibly falvorful Watercress Soup recipe with your friends to give it a proper test. It’s quite exciting to see what you will come up with (there is a whole ‘Review’ section below where you can leave your thoughts together with your images). I am sure you will love the results and come back for more!

Bon appétit! 🙂
