Watercress soup

Main courses Starters

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
    (about 250g)
    or 3 golden turnips
  • 1 stock cube
  • 1 piece of butter
  • 1 onion
  • heavy cream
  • salt, pepper

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

In a large frying pan, stir the chopped onions in butter or vegetable oil, then sweat the watercress.

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

Serve with a spoonful of heavy cream.
