Turned out great though I took some shortcuts and substitutions, used frozen leeks and onions, only had horseradish sauce on hand, and creme' fresh instead of half and half and it still t urned out terrific. Fresh watercress tastes like summer, especially welcome in the cold winter months. Would probably be even better if used all fresh veg.
Creamy Watercress Soup
From EatingWell: March/April 2010
Classic steakhouse flavors—horseradish, watercress and blue cheese—are combined in this pureed soup. The spicy, bold flavor of watercress pairs well with the rich flavor of beef, so we use beef broth as the base for the soup. Vegetable broth works, too, if you want to make a vegetarian version.

AMAZING! I made it as per recipe this time. Next time I play with my food.
For those with celiac disease simply substitute rice or corn flour and use gluten free bread but you know this right?
My 4 year old and 14 month old LOVED this recipe! Cooking with watercress was new for me. So in the middle of making it I began to wonder if it was such a good idea to be making something with such bold favors that I intended to serve to the kids. I served them some anyway with a back-up plan running through my mind. I'm so glad that I did. The 4 year old "Mmmmmmmed" after every bite. It didn't take long to make and was really so surprisingly delicious! I just wish I had doubled the recipe.
