Method

  1. Peel and wash the potato. Cut it into small pieces and steam for ten minutes.
  2. Rinse the chervil, flat-leaf parsley and watercress. Pick off all the leaves.
  3. Wash the lettuce leaves and remove the ribs. Chop the leaves roughly. Rinse the mint and set aside.
  4. Bring some lightly salted water to the boil in a pan. Prepare a bowl filled with water and ice cubes.
✦ Drop all the herbs (with the exception of the mint), the watercress and lettuce into the boiling water.
  5. Cook for two minutes, remove with a slotted spoon, and immediately drop into the ice water.
  6. Drain well. Gather them together with your hands and squeeze well to remove as much water
as possible.
  7. Heat the formula (or expressed milk). Blend the potato, herbs and lettuce, gradually adding the hot milk. Stir in the cream. Finely chop the mint leaves and add.
  8. Blend again until the soup is very smooth.
  9. Test the temperature and pour into a bowl or bottle.
