Watercress, Spinach and Potato Soup

I am still eating soup a couple of days a week even in the warm weather. It's a really easy lunch and I often have it when I know I am going out for dinner so I can splurge more points in the evening. This is delicious, don't let the colour put you off, mine turned out a kind of khaki green, but it is so tasty and the soft cheese helps to make it creamy.

Watercress, Spinach and Potato Soup (from
(Serves 4)

cooking spray
50g watercress
100g spinach
1 onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 medium potato, chopped
1l vegetable stock
100g low fat soft cheese

Spray a large saucepan with cooking spray and add the onion, saute for a few mins until transparent. Add the garlic clove and cook for 1 min.

Add the potato, spinach, watercress and stock and simmer for about 20 mins or until the potato is soft.

Blend until smooth and then add the soft cheese and blend to incorporate. Reheat to serve.
