Recipe: Cress soup with ginger

Soups with aromatic herbs
January 11, 2011

CressI always grow garden cress during winter, because we love its taste: pungent, fresh, with plenty of personality.

Garden cress is rich in minerals and vitamin C, and it's the perfect herb for winter. Add some ginger and you will create the ultimate winter soup!

Watercress and watercress soup are very popular here. I love how creamy this one is--and the addition of the ginger. Thanks for sending it in to Souper Sundays.
