Watercress Soup...

*** don't DOG it till you've tried it! ***

it's yummy :)

Recipe for Watercress Soup
(requires a food processor/blender)

• 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
• 1 potato - peeled and cubed
• 1 onion, chopped
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
• 2 1/2 cups chicken stock
• 2 1/2 cups milk
• 1 1/2 pounds watercress, large stems removed
• 1/4 cup whipped heavy cream (optional)
• 1/2 cup watercress leaves for garnish

1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium high heat. Add the potato and onion, stirring to coat with the oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat to medium, cover and heat for 5 minutes.

2. Pour in the chicken stock and the milk, bring just to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Stir in the watercress and simmer, uncovered, for 4 to 5 minutes, or until watercress is just cooked.

3. In small batches, transfer the soup to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Return the soup to the pot, season to taste, and ladle into individual bowls. (Note: Place in refrigerator if not serving at this point.)

4. Top each serving with a dollop of whipped cream (I just used the cream straight and made circles in the soup), if desired and garnish with Watercress

I think the information i have read here has been really useful, as i know a few friends who suffermigraine foodand one thing that has helped a couple of them is a Bioflow. They purchased them at migraine food. It hasn't worked for all of them, but has completely eradicated the problem for one of them, and made the migraine food much more bearable for the other. It might be worth a look
