About this recipe: This elegant soup is not only delicious, but it's also easy to make. It's a fresh tasting pureed soup, which is perfect as a starter at any dinner party. Enjoy with crusty bread rolls, if desired.
This is a great watercress soup recipe. I've been looking for something similar to one my Mum made up years ago and most other recipes have potato in them, which makes them far too filling. I've tried this a couple of times now and my only amendments would be a) using a vegetable bouillon - I used homemade chicken stock the first time and it was too fatty and b) using whipping cream as it's a slightly lighter texture. It also needs quite a lot of seasoning to bring out the flavour, which I prefer to add at the cooking stage. All in all a really tasty soup which is as nice cold as hot. Thanks! - 14 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I purchased watercress because I have never used it before and wanted to try something new. I added dried basil, garlic powder and sriracha after stirring in the watercress to add some flavor. This was very easy and I will try it again. - 04 Sep 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Today I made this recipe for the first time. I followed the recipe as written, which is my custom the first time I use it after I change it to fit my personal taste. Happily I will in future make it with NO changes. It is tasty, easy to make and makes an elegant presentation. I think that it is destined to become a great company dish. - 23 Mar 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
