Supo Kapisi Vai

large bunch watercress, woody stalks removed
4 slices of smoked bacon
3 cups of water
sunflower oil
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 cup of Taro or potato
1 cup of coconut milk
salt & pepper

Chop the bacon into strips and place them in a large heavy bottom pan with a tablespoon of oil. Fry over a medium heat until the bacon has browned. Add the ginger and garlic and fry for a further 3 minutes. Add 3 cups of water to the pan and the Taro or Potato and simmer until soft. Add the watercress and place a lid on the pan and simmer for a few minutes until the watercress has wilted. Blend the soup with a blending stick, food processor or blender until smooth. Return soup to the pan and add the coconut milk, season with pepper and salt if needed and heat through.
