Watercress soup (also known as buttermilk) is extremely tasty and prepares very quickly, without much effort.
Ingredients for watercress soup
- 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
- 1 potato
- 1 onion
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper
- 2 1/2 cups of chicken broth
- 2 1/2 cups of milk
- 700 g of tender cress leaves
- 1/4 cup heavy liquid cream

How to make watercress soup
Heat the oil to medium temperature in a large saucepan. Add the peeled and diced potato and the chopped onion, season with salt and pepper and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the chicken soup and milk and bring the mixture to a boil, then let it simmer at a low temperature for 10 minutes. Add the 700g of watercress and boil the soup for 5 minutes. Allow to cool a little and blend with the help of the blender. Reheat again, put it in individual bowls and decorate each with a little liquid cream and a few fresh cress leaves.
How to serve watercress soup
