Add croutons, small bits of fried black sausage, sunflower seeds, crushed hazelnuts or just some chunks of gorgonzola to add some spice to your velouté. A dash of truffle oil will be great too.
- 1 bunch of watercress (150 g)
- 1 roughly chopped onion (80 g)
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 L of vegetable or chicken broth
- 1 potato (120 g)
- 10 g butter
- Step 1 Fry the peeled and chopped onion in the butter, then add the peeled potato cut in chunks, the salt, the pepper and cook and stir for about 5 minutes.
- Step 2 Add the broth when hot, cover, and let it cook for about 20 minutes. This part can be done in advance.
- Step 3 Then add the washed watercress. Bring to a boil and let it simmer for only 2 to 3 minutes. That way the watercress will maintain its nice green color.
- Step 4 Use your soup mixer for the velouté finish and once you have checked on the seasoning, serve immediately in a mug or a bowl. This velouté can be stored several days in the refrigerator. To maintain the savory taste, just warm up the necessary quantity at a time.
