Easy Stir-Fry & Spicy Noodle Soup

For the past number of months American Express and Whole Foods Market have teamed up to bring you additional cash back when you use your American Express Blue Cash card at any WFM location!

I have joined in and have brought you two ways to use one ingredient to go along with the program! In the archives you will find: Sweet Potato, Butternut Squash, and Ham.

This month we have an ingredient that I cannot wait to start using more! Watercress! I am bringing you two delicious ways to use the fresh herb. In my go-to One-Pan Chicken Stir-Fry and in my Spicy Noodle Soup!
