Servings 4


  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1 tsp Ginger
  • 6 Cups Filtered Water
  • 1 Vegetable Stock
  • 2 Potatoes (peeled and diced)
  • 140g Watercress
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice


  • In a large saucepan, lightly saute the garam masala and ginger together until fragrant. This should only take about 1 minute as you don't want the spices to burn.
  • Place the water and the vegetable stock into the saucepan and bring to the boil.
  • Add the potato and cover with saucepan with a lid and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add the watercress and cook for a further 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  • Add the lemon juice if desired. If not, transfer the mixture to a blender or like me, use a hand blender until the soup is smooth.
  • Serve with a sprig of watercress to serve with bread or accompaniment of choice.
