Legend has it that St. Brendan the Navigator sailed to North America and lived to the age of 108 by eating watercress soup.

Princess Di's Watercress Soup

(from Recipes for Life, 1995)

Her own recipe--a nice soup, very British. Serve hot to 4-6 people.

Heat butter in a saucepan and stir in the flour, stirring for a few minutes. Remove from heat and pour in the chicken stock, whisking hard. Bring to a simmer and add watercress. Return to a simmer, cover, and cook over low heat for 20 minutes. Puree in a blender, return to saucepan and heat with the cream. When ready to serve, ladle into bowls.
