Gingered Watercress Chicken Soup

There’s nothing like a bowl of homemade soup for warmth and comfort. Flavored with the sharp, spicy tang of ginger and hints of lemon, this soup provides a powerful flavor profile, but the broth base delivers a light presence.

  1. In a saucepot, over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add ginger, garlic and salt until just fragrant, about 1 minute.
  2. Add carrots, onion and celery and cook until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are softened, about 10 minutes.
  4. Stir in watercress and chicken and cook until heated through, about one minute.
  5. Stir in lemon zest. Garnish with scallions, if desired.
