Watercress soup

SOUP

2tsp Coconut oil

1 Large onion, roughly chopped

2 Garlic cloves, roughly diced

150g Celeriac peeled and roughly diced

1L Bone broth or vegetable stock

1 Large potato, peeled and roughly diced

400g Watercress stalks and leaves

A pinch Nutmeg

A handful Fresh Parsley

Salt & pepper (remember that watercress is peppery)

NUT CREAM

16 Brazil Nuts (or cashew nuts)

2 tbsp Lemon juice

2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper

Instructions

Heat the coconut oil in a large saucepan with a lid over a low heat and gently fry the onion and garlic for about 5 min until softened but not brown.

Turn up the heat to medium and add the celeriac and potato stirring to coat with oil. Add the bone broth, add salt and pepper to taste.

Put the lid on a leave to simmer for about 15-20 min, or until the celeriac is tender. Turn off the heat.

Meanwhile, blend the ingredients for the Brazil nut cream in the blender with 4 tbsp of warm water.

Season to taste and transfer to a small jug or bowl to serve. Without washing the blender, pour in the celeriac soup base andadd the watercress. If the blender is small, then do this in batches.

Alternatively, carefully blend the soup together in the saucepan using a hand-held blender.

Add more liquid if you want to adjust the consistency blend for longer.

Season to taste and ladle into bowls. Drizzle with the Brazilian nut cream and top with ground nutmeg.
