Creamy, delicate white beans are the perfect backdrop for earthy shiitakes and fresh, pungent watercress. Serve with a crisp green salad.

Directions
  1. In a large saucepan, heat olive oil and sauté celery, onion, carrot, and garlic for 4 minutes. Add mushrooms; toss to coat with oil and cook for 3 minutes longer. Add beans and broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes.
  2. Ladle half of the soup into a food processor or blender, and purée until smooth. Return to pan. Stir in watercress and heat through for 1 minute. Season generously with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.
