  1. Blanch watercress in pot of boiling salted water 30 seconds. Drain; set aside.

  3. Working in batches, puree soup in blender until smooth. Return soup to pot. Mix in cream. Season with salt and pepper. Chill at least 4 hours and up to 1 day. Thin with more broth, if desired. Ladle soup into bowls. Sprinkle with chives.
