Gluten-Free Vegan Watercress Spring Soup

Gluten-Free Vegan Watercress Spring Soup

I used to think that soups are reserved for winter months only. But my husband convinced me otherwise with some of his delicious spring soup flavors, like this gorgeous watercress soup that also happens to be gluten-free and vegan!
