Family Recipe: Watercress Soup

This came from the good ol’ Aunt Ruth’s cookbook, which are also recipes from my family supper club Murphy’s I believe. I loooove watercress in soups (mostly miso!) but this recipe is a keeper because watercress is the star.

Also, when the recipe calls for whipped cream, I’m going with sour cream for the below.  Not today’s ‘whipped cream’ from a canister 🙂
