Recipe type: Soup
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 3 medium potatoes, diced (I used Red Bliss but you could use any you have on hand)
  • 2 bunches scallions, both green and white parts, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 cup watercress, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3-4 cups vegetable stock or water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Heat olive oil in a saucepan. Add scallions and saute for about five minutes on low heat.
  2. Add garlic and saute for another minute
  3. Add potatoes and vegetable stock.
  4. Add salt and pepper.
  5. Bring to a boil. Cover and let it simmer about 20 minutes until potatoes are very tender.
  6. Puree the mixture with an immersion blender or by transferring to a regular blender (be very careful if doing the latter because the soup is very hot. Also just quickly pulse about 2-3 times and don't overprocess because the potatoes can get starchy and sticky, ruining the soup's texture. I like my soup a little chunky.)
  7. Return to saucepan and heat through, adding watercress just before you turn off heat. Add more salt and pepper if required.
  8. Enjoy.
