Vestal's watercress soup

Saute onion in melted butter over low heat until golden but not brown. Add watercress leaves, cover and cook 5 minutes.

Stir in flour. Combine chicken bouillon and milk and stir into vegetables.

Simmer 15 minutes. Puree in electric blender or food processor. (NOTE: Soup does not have to be pureed, but many people prefer it that way.) Add salt and pepper to taste. Return to pan and reheat gently.
