To make the puree: Place the potato and garlic with the butter and cook for 2 minutes on medium heat. Add the stock and cook for 5 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and ground nutmeg. Cook on low for 7–10 minutes, add the washed watercress and cream and cook for 2 minutes. Pass in a blender and purify until smooth.
