Serving suggestions

The soup can be used as a base, adding all sorts to it.

  • For that special dinner party, smoked salmon finished with a spoonful of lightly whipped cream and fresh chopped parsley is a winner.

    Not really a recipe but here goes.
    2 baps
    4 large eggs boiled so that the yellow still has some creaminess to it.
    Butter
    Mayonnaise
    1 bunch watercress
    White pepper

    Split and butter the baps.
    Smear both sides with mayonnaise and sprinkle both mayonnaise sides with a dusting of pepper.
    Slice the eggs and arrange in the bap and grind on a little salt.
    Add the watercress.

    I am completely addicted to these on a Saturday lunchtime! Delish!
