Watercress and Stilton Soup

This is everyones favourite. It tastes nothing like Watercress but has a wonderful flavour and colour, is really simple to make and always goes down extremely well with friends and family. I gave this recipe to my sister who cooked for L.A.Fitness, they were so impressed it's now on the menu!!
