Product description

Rocket leaves or popularly known as arugula or salad rocket is a nutritious green-leafy vegetable. The young tender leaves carry a bitter peppery flavour that makes it mostly a salad vegetable.

Rocket leaves have a sweet, nutty flavour when they're young but start developing a strong spicy flavour as they mature. Rocket leaves are available throughout the year.

leafy greens are rich in chlorophyll, amino acids and vitamins C, E, B and K. They also contain beta-carotene, as well as lutein and zeaxanthin (for eye health). 

Rocket Leaves Uses:

  • Arugula is delicious raw and can be used as a healthy add-on topping for pizza, nachos, sandwiches, and wraps.
  • You can serve it as a side salad with nothing more than a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  • Arugula can be used as an alternative to basil to make hot or cold pesto. This recipe uses arugula, parmesan, and pine nuts with succulent results.
