Remember the sopa de agriao that I made last week? To make it, I bought quite a lot of watercress and, by Wednesday, it was starting to droop and look sad. What could I do? Unfortunately I really, really can’t eat fresh watercress. It’s way too strong; a hundred times worse than strong arugula!
I stood there, watching the sad watercress, and then noticed that it looked quite a lot like spinach. And spinach is something that I’m more used to using.
So I made an omelette.
And it was good.
While you’re following the next steps, heat a small pot with a tiny bit of water, salt and the watercress and let it wilt on a low fire. Very little water; very low fire.
I used frozen onion and ham because that’s what I had (just in case you noticed something strange in the photo)
I used beer for the first time and the omelette had a very different, strange, malty taste. I liked it.
Mix it into the eggs, that you’ve gently whipped with milk, salt and pepper.
This is an omelette I will definitely make again!
Quindi water cress e cress sono due piante diverse? Io compro quelle vaschette di germogli che spesso hanno entrambi i nomi, ma sono più piccoli di quelli che hai usato tu, e lo chiamo crescione.
Penso che siano uguali, ma nella vaschettina sono i germogli e quelli che ho usato io sono le piante cresciute!
Ah no ho controllato! Sono geneticamente cugine ma non sono la stessa specie!
