Watercress and Roasted Pear with Red Dates
Vegetarian | Contains Dairy | Gluten-Free
Calling all fans of Cantonese double-boiled soups! The watercress is much loved for its nourishing effects, especially when double-boiled with red dates. I’m a big fan too! In this rendition, enjoy the natural sweetness from roasted Packham pears and a Western-style base thickened with cream, unusually but suitably paired with the slightly sharp taste of watercress.
