Asparagus & Watercress Soup w Marjoram & Thyme
Prep time
Total time
A beautiful, fragrant soup, and nice and light as well. No added fats, and as it's bursting with flavour, salt is optional. And although super quick to make, this soup has loads of character!
Watercress contains more iron than spinach, more calcium than milk and more vitamin C than oranges. It has a the highest amount of vitamin K, has anti cancer properties (through phenethyl isothiocyanates, honestly), and other disease preventing phytonutrients and antioxidants. Definitely worth making a soup of ;-)
