Recipe: Egg & Bacon with Avocado and Cress

Omelettes and egg recipes with herbs
November 24, 2010

CressThe garden cress sown last month is ready to be harvested. This aromatic herb can be planted all year round, and I chose to cultivate it during fall because it seems very appropriate for this season: not only is rich in vitamin C, but it helps to calm the cough and has expectorant properties.


Garden cress can be used for a soup, but now the harvests are still limited. So I'm using it as a topping for meat and egg dishes, a perfect match for its pungent and fresh taste.

Cook the bacon in a pan for a couple of minutes, then add the beaten eggs and cook, stirring often.
Peel the avocado, core it and cut into slices.

I love the taste of watercress and planted some in a pot, set on a shelf of my pond. It did not thrive, but then a sprig of it established itself in a big decorative pot that has a few water plants and gets rainwater. Now it s flourishing. Sometimes plants let us know where they want to be.

Watercress loves water, looks like your plant find a good place to live! But be careful, it may kill the other plants if it becomes too strong.
