Rocket (also known as arugula) has feathered leaves similar to those of radishes and is mainly grown as a salad vegetable. The vegetable tastes slightly nutty and ranges from piquant to peppery hot.
Rocket – Fresh from Pfalzmarkt
Rocket combines very well with mild leaf lettuces or can be enjoyed warm in risotto and mashed potato.
Rocket keeps in the crisper drawer of the fridge for one to two days when wrapped in plastic.
