Ingredients

2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided1 small onion, diced4 clove garlic, minced4 cup reduced-sodium beef broth or vegetable broth, divided3 Tbsp all-purpose flour⅛ tsp salt8 cup chopped watercress, any tough stems removed, plus 1/2 cup leaves for garnish2 Tbsp shredded fresh horseradish (see Note) or prepared horseradish, or to taste½ cup half & half freshly ground pepper to taste2 2 slices day-old sourdough bread, crusts removed, finely chopped2 Tbsp crumbled blue cheese (optional)

Directions

1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables start to soften and brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk 1 cup broth and flour in a small bowl until completely smooth. Set aside. Add the remaining 3 cups broth and salt to the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook, stirring often, until the onion is very tender, about 5 minutes.

2. Stir chopped watercress into the pot and cook, stirring often, until tender, about 5 minutes. Stirring constantly, add the flour mixture and horseradish. Bring to a simmer and cook until thickened, 1 to 3 minutes.

3. Puree the soup in a blender in batches until smooth. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids.) Return to the pot, stir in half-and-half and season with pepper; keep warm.

4. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a medium skillet over medium-low heat. Add breadcrumbs and cook, stirring often, until golden and crispy, 3 to 5 minutes.

5. Ladle soup into 4 bowls. Garnish with the breadcrumbs, watercress leaves and blue cheese, if desired.

Ingredient note: Look for fresh horseradish root in the produce section of well-stocked supermarkets. Peel with a paring knife or vegetable peeler before grating.
