This soup can lean either way... If you really like the celeriac flavour, just use the watercress stalks in the soup (version 1), if you like it more watercressy, chop one of the bunches of leaves into the soup (version 2), if you want it really watercressy, purée both of the bunches of watercress with the celeriac, just reserving a few leaves to decorate (version 3).
