B&W Watercress and Arugula
Watercress is truly a global vegetable – no matter where you travel throughout the world, the peppery green is most likely grown and utilized in the local diet. Here in America, B&W makes watercress available easily, so you can add its wonderfully distinctive flavor to your daily recipe rotation.
How to Prepare Watercress
Simply rinse it thoroughly in cold water and use a kitchen knife to cut off any over-sized stems. Blot the watercress dry using paper towels or use a standard salad spinner. Once you’ve finished rinsing, you can prepare the watercress by lightly steaming it or eat it raw. Perfect for a sandwich or salad.
B&W Quality Growers offers arugula in conveniently double washed package. It’s perfect for complimenting milder greens like Bibb and Boston in a big, heart healthy salad. It also makes a mean pesto.
How to Prepare Arugula
Steaming it in a saucepan or sautéing it in a skillet, and drizzling it with olive oil as a flavorful side dish. Other methods include wilting the flavorful leaves in a pot of hot pasta to add texture and a tasty kick, substituting arugula for basil in pesto sauce, and adding it to sandwiches for an extra boost of flavor.
