Rocket has been the ultra trendy salad leaf of the mid 1990s. I recently declared my kitchen a rocket-free zone, but this soup is the exception, particularly when it is paired with that other 1990s culinary wunderkind, truffle oil.
Proceed as for the watercress soup. Certain more robust types of rocket may need the major stalks removed.
