This soup is a real childhood memory, a Proust’s madeleine… We love the original and peppered taste and its beautiful green color, and we enjoy it every time we can, in three different versions : only with potatoes, for a richer soup, only with golden turnips for a lighter version, or with a mix of both. In any case it’s delicious…
Starter for 4 people, main course for 2
- 250g of watercress
- 2 medium potatoes
or 3 golden turnips
- 1 stock cube

Cook the peeled and cut into pieces potatoes (and/or golden turnips) in boiling water with the stock cube.

When the potatoes are done, add the watercress and mix everything with a knob of butter. Salt and pepper.
