Tip of Stefano:
Watercress, delicious and healthy
If you want to add some bite to your dish, watercress is the perfect taste enhancer. Watercress is a true mineral and vitamin bomb and has a very high nutritional value, as it is packed with antioxidants and vitamin C.
The watercress flavour is perfect for our gazpacho
Watercress has a very spicy – almost peppery – flavour as well as a hint of radish. It becomes even hotter after blossoming. The highly specific taste means you do not need a great deal of watercress in your dishes. Just add a little watercress to your salad or use it to make a delicious pesto. If you want to make full use of the flavour of watercress, then use it in soup, such as in this recipe. A delicious gazpacho with watercress, completed by the seitan carpaccio.
