My New Happy: Cream Of Watercress Soup

Cream Of Watercress Soup

Happy day after Thanksgiving!  I hope everyone had a wonderful day with family and friends.  Now that we're all full of turkey and pumpkin pie, how about something new? Today I'm linking up with the Lifestyle Sistas to share recipes with five ingredients or less.

I mentioned this Cream of Watercress soup back in October, because my hubby makes it for me every year when we're carving pumpkins for Halloween.  I love "cream of anything" soup, but this one is particularly flavorful, and really easy.

Cream of Watercress Soup

2 cans chicken broth
3 medium size potatoes, peeled and diced
1 bunch watercress, finely chopped
1 pint heavy whipping cream
salt and pepper

Place diced potatoes in chicken broth and bring to a boil.  Simmer until potatoes are done.  Blend potatoes (in broth) with an immersion blender for thickening.  Add cream, chopped watercress, and salt & pepper to taste.  Use immersion blender again (a quick shot should do it) to mix up all ingredients.  Simmer on low for 15-20 minutes, or until cream thickens.  Garnish with croutons.

I hope you'll link up with us today, or come back next Friday for our favorite holiday meals!


  1. This soup looks so pretty! I can't wait to try it. My daughter is requesting Turkey soup before she goes back to school, so I will probably have to make that first! Thanks for hosting the linkup!
