Ideas for Loads of Watercress?

Juniper | | Dec 19, 2007 07:33 AM

So I bought a crapload of watercress recently... like 3 lbs worth, which unfortunately did not get used for its original intended purpose (sauteed with garlic for huge family gathering and eventually decided that there was already enough food so didn't bother with the watercress).

It's the two of us now, trying to munch our way through this jungle of watercress. I made some salads, sauteed some with garlic, and put some into a Chinese soup, and now I'm out of ideas.

It's not fresh enough to eat as salad anymore, and it's a tad fibrous to substitute for spinach in most recipes. Wondering if you have any ideas for what to do with the remaining 2 lbs of watercress?

Something interesting? Maybe a veloute? Does anyone have a recipe for a veloute?

Anything else?
