Seven soups every Saturday: watercress soup recipes


In a year when I've promised to eat more kale, it's no surprise that I'm also drawn to recipes for watercress, as it's a cousin of kale and collard greens. A peppery perennial herb, watercress grows along the edges of streams or marshes, and the edible leaves are harvested before the plant flowers. Watercress might be best known for its inclusion in fancy little tea sandwiches, but the slightly mustard-flavored leaves also transform into hot or chilled soup, elegant or more rustic.

Seven watercress soup recipes caught my eye this week:

Watercress soup with chicken and ginseng, from Noob Cook

Watercress soup, from Simply Recipes

Fennel, potato and watercress soup, from Canelle et Vanille

Sweet potato and watercress soup, from Albion Cooks

Turkey, tortellini and watercress soup, from A Veggie Venture

Watercress vichyssoise, from Blue Kitchen

Watercress and mushroom soup, from She's in the Kitchen

I love watercress, and I don't think I've ever cooked with it, not even once.

Kalyn, now that I know watercress is related to kale, I'm certainly going to cook with it more often. This is my eat-more-kale year.
