watercress herb

Watercress is a perennial, semi-aquatic plant native to Europe and Asia. As a member of the mustard family, the herb protects itself from predators with the defense chemicals glucosinolate and myrosinase. These substances also lend watercress the spicy, pungent flavor that is characteristic of cruciferous vegetables and salad greens.

While the fresh leaves of watercress are used in salads and sandwiches, the dried herb is prepared as tea and used to add peppery flavor to soups, stews, braised meats and other foods.
