    Watercress and Lettuce Soup

    Watercress and Little Gem lettuce makes a light and pretty green soup that is equally good served hot or cold.

    Serves: 4

    Ingredients

    • 1 medium potato
    • 1 bunch of salad onions
    • 600ml chicken or vegetable stock
    • 1 organic gem lettuce
    • Organic watercress
    • Milk
    • Yogurt or crème fraîche

    Method

    1. Peel and chop a medium potato and trim and roughly chop 1 bunch of salad onions. Simmer them in 600ml chicken or vegetable stock for 10 minutes.
    2. Shred 1 organic Little Gem lettuce and add to the pan. Simmer for 10-15 minutes until the vegetables are completely tender. Process in a blender or food processor until smooth. Add enough milk to make the soup the desired consistency, then add a bunch of organic watercress, washed, trimmed and roughly chopped.
    3. Process for a few seconds. Heat to simmering point then stir in a little yogurt or crème fraîche. Serve hot or chilled, garnished with a sprig of watercress.
