We love soup.
One of the joys of the AP has been fresh watercress.
I have tried many recipes but this is our favorite;

Soften a medium chopped onion in 40 grm of butter
Add 1 table spoon of flour stir,
Then add 400 mltrs of milk and 200 mlts of water.
Without boiling simmer for 5 mins.
Set aside.
Bring a large pan of water to the boil
Blanch 400 grms of Watercress for 1 min
Then plunge into ice cold water
Drain and add to your food processor /liquidizer.
Slowly add the onion milk mixture to the machine.
Chill and garnish with a few fresh watercress leaves.

I don’t think I need to write the recipes for ‘Gazpacho or even ‘Ajo Blanco’ ( almonds and garlic) also favorites but I will if asked.

Another of our favorites, this one hot, is “Sczaw”
This Eastern European soup we make with Sorrel leaves. They have a slightly bitter citric taste
I make a stock with pork bones carrot onion celery bay leaf etc.
Drain and then add the finely chopped sorrel. Top with sour or ordinary cream.
I haven’t planted sorrel in the AP system as the pot in the photo supplies all our needs. I also add sometimes to a salad.

I'm looking forward to trying this recipe out. I've only just planted watercress seeds recently so it may be a while before I can give you my review.

Thanks for sharing. I haven't looked yet, but your recipe has got me interested in looking for other recipes on the forum.

Watercress grows balistically in aquaponics.
Our watercress gets used in salads as usual but my favorite is potato and watercress soup.
onion, garlic, little celery and or leek, soften in butter, add rough chopped potatoes, chicken stock, season with salt and pepper, couple of sprigs of marjoram.
simmer till potatoes are almost soft, add a huge bunch of watercress, simmer till potatoes are fully cooked and w/cress is softened but not over cooked.
Blend till smooth.
A little cream on serving. Blanched w/cress leaves as garnish or one I sometimes use is toasted circle of bread, rosettete of whipped cream on top (unsweetene of course) and 3 little Parmesan wafers rolled into cones and arranged on the cream, fresh small sprig of w/cress in middle. This for dinner parties only.
Having this soup for lunch today.

Move over Master Chef. How do you stop yourself drooling into the soup as you prepare it? :thumbright:

My all time favourite soup is made with split yellow mung dal (lentil)
The quickest and simplest dal filled with proteins and flavoured with simple spices. You don’t have to soak it for hours, before cooking just wash it several times with cold water and put it straight for cooking.The roasted coriander seeds and fennel seeds add to the flavour

Hi! Did you try hungarian mushroom soup? It's basically a creme soup with dill and lemon, but it's more delicious.
