Watercress and sweet potato soup

This is soup is so easy to make with very few basic ingredients, but tastes amazing and full of flavour and is brimming with goodness.

There's lots of variations of this online but I simplified my version and it was a winner.

The sweetness of the potato makes this a favourite with all the family young and old.

This is Ideal after being out on a cold run and the Watercress is great in aiding  recovery.

Serves 4

  • 1 medium sized Sweet Potato peeled and chopped into small cubes
  • 1 bag of  Watercress
  • 600ml Chicken Stock (or Vegetable Stock)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

  • In a large saucepan add the Sweet Potato cubes and Watercress
  • Pour in the Stock and bring to the boil
  • Add Salt and Pepper to taste (Go easy on the Pepper as the peppery taste of the Watercress comes through) 
  • Let simmer for about 30 minutes.
  • Carefully pour the mixture into a blender or use a hand blender, and blend until smooth.
  • Serve and Enjoy!
