I was so excited when we were on holidays to come across watercress at a farmers market. I've always wanted to try it, but I've never even seen it before. I got 2 bunches for $2.00 - a steal I think.

But what to do with it????

My first dish I wanted to try was Haalo's Watercress and Potato Soup

This soup makes me wish that the local store carried watercress. It was so good and rich tasting - sort of like our potato leek soup, but with a greener, more peppery flavor. When we were stripping the leaves from the stalks (fun!) I gave some a taste and was surprised at the strong flavor. Delicious.

I still have one bunch left! What to do, what to do...

Hi Sara - the soup looks just perfect! The watercress looks fantastic too - I think you're right that is a steal. Glad you enjoyed the soup!
