Yummy Peas and Potatoes with fresh herbs and watercress

Lately I have been obsessed with vegetarian cooking because of the intense flavors in their dishes. I have come to learn that you do not need to use complicated ingredients to make a delicious meal. Using a lot fresh herbs, spices and knowing what food combinations work is the key to tasty dishes.
 I came across a great side dish recipe from Food and Wine magazine which included peas, potatoes, watercress and herbs. Not only is this a healthy dish, it is also delicious and is very easy to make. 

I served this dish with grilled chicken however you can eat it alone or serve with any protein of your choice.

2 cloves fresh garlic
salt and freshly ground pepper
1 quart water
