Watercress Soup

Detox With a Quick Watercress Soup

For a seasonal, detoxifying recipe full of flavor, try a pot of this watercress soup. This peppery, flavorful green is high in vitamins A and C, iron, and fiber, all essential nutrients when you're looking to reboot your system. This is a perfect recipe for anyone who is tired of one pureed soup after another, since the diced potato brings a little extra substance, texture, and protein to your bowl.
