Recently I bought 2 bundles of watercress from Asian market when visited NYC. Usually I will stir-fry or make soup with it.I remember when I was young my grandmother always make watercress soup for us.There is no hard rules to make this soup.I used split chicken breast and some herbs with watercress to make this healthy and delicious soup. Ingredients:
2 bundles watercress (soaked and wash)
1/2 cup red pitted dates(soaked and wash)
50 gm or 1/4 cup gojiberries (wash)
2 pieces chicken split (chicken breast with bone)
4 liter water
salt to taste
1:Make sure to wash watercress thoroughly.Prepare water in medium soup pot at high heat.When water rolling boil,add in split chicken breast,pitted red dates and watercress.
2:When the combine ingredients and soup rolling boil again ,add in gojiberries and reduce heat to medium.Let's it simmer with cover on for another 45 minutes to 1 hour or longer.
3:Add salt to your taste,leave uncover and let's boil for another 10-15 minutes before remove from heat.
