Watercress, Pea and Mint Soup

Prep 10 minutes Cook 10 minutes Makes Serves 3 - 4

This fresh-tasting soup is a celebration of spring and packed full of goodness. Watercress is deservedly regarded as a super food, ranked right at the top of many healthy food lists. It is full of calcium, vitamin K, beta carotene, plus cancer-fighting phenylethyl isothiocyanate.

Blending it into soup makes it easy to consume plenty in one serving, but make sure you don’t overcook the leaves, otherwise the soup will lose it’s beautiful vibrant colour
