A light and refreshing watercress and sorrel soup.
Spring I know your struggling to show up but your here to stay in my kitchen whether you like it or not, ok.
I went to the farmers market at the weekend and found a lovely bunch of sorrel. Now I know sorrel isn’t readily available in the supermarkets but if you do have a local farmers market near you definitely look out for some. I’ve only tried it a couple of times before and it is a really unique herb. It amps up a dish and gives it an extra fist pump factor. Its very astringent and citrus in flavour so can be substituted for a good squeeze of lemon juice. It works like a dream paired with the delicious peppery heat of watercress and a small amount of cream to mellow it out.
I topped my soup of with a soft boiled egg and some pumpkin seeds for a bit of crunch. It makes the perfect light lunch.
I recently discovered this little blog has been shortlisted for a Blogosphere magazine food blogger of the year award. This was a complete surprise too me albeit a very lovely one. Blogosphere is a really awesome quarterly magazine created by bloggers for bloggers. They have 10 categories in the awards so if you have a minute pop over and take a look at the nominees https://www.blogospheremagazine.com/awards/ to vote for your favs.
Have a great week everyone.
