Autumn weekends filled with pottering and the seasonal abundance are my favourite. Last weekend we filled our bags at the farmers market (see it in my latest vlog) and lingered in the park.
A long time favourite of mine is Watercress Soup. It’s filled with flavour and light enough not to leave you drowsy all afternoon. In Hampshire we are blessed with watercress merely hours from the beds and I take full advantage.
I have been asked by Thompson Al Fresco to come up with a healthy recipe which is easy to cook whilst camping. They very kindly sent me some kitchen goodies to help with my creation.

When we’re camping my priority for food is that it’s the same quality we’d serve at home but still easy to cook al fresco. Without a doubt one of my favourite dishes is soup as it is nourishing, versatile and easy peasy.
This recipe is light on prep and washing up yet heavy on the flavour and goodness. You’ll need a chopping board, knife, kettle, large pan, wooden spoon and masher. If you are cooking this at home with modern conveniences then I’d use a stick blender instead of a masher.
