I am sure most allotments now have a section, grow bag or pot of salad leaves.  Rocket is becoming more popular with its pungent strong peppery flavour, I might be a little early for making this in March, but as it is such a cold spring and soups are popular I have included it earlier. The recipe is for around four generous servings, and needs a lot of Rocket, half the amount I found was enough for three people  

30ml / 2tsp olive oil

2 small onions, chopped

2 garlic cloves, crushed

300ml / 1/2 pint double cream

700ml / 1,1/4 pint/ vegetable stock

700g / 1,1/2lb Rocket


  1. Use a high sided pan and on a medium heat add olive oil and sliced onion, allow to sweat for a few minutes.
  2. Add garlic, but don’t allow to colour.
  3. Add cream and stock, bring slowly to boil, simmer for 5mins.
  4. Add the rocket, return to boil, then turn off the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  5. Puree in a blender, strain if preferred, add salt and pepper, serve in warm bowls.
  6. Add  smoked salmon, or finely sliced gammon pieces.
