Creamy Watercress & Tomato Soup w Kaffir Lime Leaf
This is an amazing soup with delicate creaminess. Watercress is incredibly healthy, and its flavour pairs beautifully with tomato, basil and avocado in this recipe. Kaffir Lime leaves add a nice surprising flavour and no oil is needed as you use avocado for healthy fats and a smooth feel :-)
