Watercress and Pear Soup – Chilled


  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 25g butter
  • 600ml chicken stock
  • 250g potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 x 85g bags watercress
  • 4 pears, peeled, cored and diced
  • 50ml cream
  • a little milk
  • salt and pepper


In a large pan, sweat the onion in the butter until soft but not brown, about 10 minutes. Add the stock and potatoes, cook until the potatoes are soft, approx. 15-20 minutes. Add watercress and diced pear for the last five minutes of cooking time. Liquidise and add the cream and a little milk if the soup seems too thick. Season, cool and cover, then chill in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours. Check seasoning before serving.
