Watercress Soup with Yoghurt

This watercress soup packs a peppery punch of flavour that makes it ideal for lunch with friends. And, because it uses Knorr vegetable stock cubes, it’s simple to make too. Cool yoghurt, mixed with curry powder and a dollop of sweet honey or maple syrup, makes an excellent addition that guests can add at the table.
