Considered one of the oldest leaves consumed by humans, the watercress is dark green and has a mild peppery flavour with a bitter tang. It belongs to the family of exotic cabbage, broccoli and kale. The herb is gaining its position amongst the superfoods because of its high nutrient content. 

The watercress leaf has a spicy taste. Therefore, it is generally used as garnish over salads, in sandwiches or diluted with vinegar to create a blend of Italian flavours. You can eat raw watercress. In addition, each part of it is edible, including leaf, stem, and flower. Although its roots might not taste bad, you should stay away from its consumption.
