3 large   Peeled and diced potatoes
1 cup 250 ml Diced celery
1 large   Sliced thin onion
1   Thinly sliced leek
1 whole clove   Garlic
1 ½ cups 375 ml Boiling water
1 ½ cups 375 ml Chicken stock
2 tsp 10 ml Salt
¼ tsp 1 ml Pepper
2 cups 500 ml Spinach
2 cups 500 ml Iceberg lettuce (torn)
1 cup 250 ml Watercress leaves
2 cups 500 ml Milk



  1. In a saucepan, place the potatoes, celery, onions, leek, and garlic.
  2. Then add the water, chicken stock, and bring to a boil adding in salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Cover and turn down the heat and let it sit for 10 minutes.
  4. Add in the lettuce, spinach, and watercress, cover it up again, and allow to simmer for an added 15 minutes.
  5. Pour them in (a little at a time) the blender until smooth. Mix in the milk and then, bring them back to the saucepan and let it reach the boiling point. Or if you have a hand blender, you don’t need to go through the switching of the blender to saucepan process.
  6. Pour on a ceramic bowl, sprinkle some croutons on top.
