Often thought of as lettuce, rocket is actually a member of the cabbage family. It has an intense smell and a slightly spicy taste, which will work best in combinations with delicate salad ingredients, in meat dishes or with cheeses. It is also a spice plant, used in the production of mustard, aromatic pesto or sauces.
Rocket is a real vitamin bomb! Only 100g of leaves cover over 70% of the daily requirement for vitamin K, which is responsible for the good condition of our blood and bones. Arugula is also rich in vitamin C, folic acid and potassium.
