Watercress soup is a very nourishing soup that is easy to cook. Watercress soup is believed to have a ‘cooling’ effect on the body. Watercress is packed with anti-oxidants and vitamins. Also, it is said to have detoxifying and cancer-preventing properties as well. Because watercress is quite strong in fragrant and flavour, I have decided to cook it with chicken. However, it can be cooked with pork ribs too.
To cook watercress soup:
Rinse red dates
Soaked the wolfberries in water until puffy
Wash, drained and roughly cut the watercress
Blanch the chicken pieces to remove scum to ensure clear soup
Put everything in a pot or pressure cooker. Cover and cooked till done
Lastly add in the wolfberries when the soup is cooked
This soup is super savoury and also so so sweet
SO ………. ENJOY!
