Watercress soup


  1. Take a large pan and cook the onion in the butter until soft but not browned.
  2. Add the potatoes and stock and cook until the potatoes are soft (approx 15-20 minutes).
  3. When potatoes are almost cooked, add the watercress (try to allow for no longer than 5 minutes cooking time for the watercress).
  4. Liquidise and add the cream. Use a little extra milk if the soup seems too thick. Season with salt and black pepper and serve hot.
