Today, we’re taking a closer look at arugula, a veg with a peppery taste and, in my opinion, enough of a flavour profile to enjoy on its own or with very minimal added ingredients! Who else enjoys snacking on some plain leafy greens?
This Mediterranean vegetable is one of many, m a n y, different types of leafy greens, and has its own many varieties itself. If you haven’t gotten hooked on this peppery green, it may be you haven’t found your favourite variety… yet!♥️
Arugula is a fast-growing cool-season green that can actually be grown all year as long it’s given protection from extreme cold and heat ☀️❄️ (That’s where our amazing farmers come in!)
Arugula leaves can be harvested at different sizes, but smaller leaves usually mean a milder flavour while bigger leaves that have grown longer have a stronger taste.
Arugula can be used in soups, salads, pastas, as pesto, on pizza, on bread, and so much more! 🥗🍲 All it needs is a gentle wash and it’s ready to use. This green should be kept in the fridge – you can wrap it in a cloth or paper towel to absorb excess moisture. It’ll be good for about 10 days, but should be eaten within 3-6 for the best taste!
And boy, that taste. Look below for some amazing arugula recipes we’ve been drooling about.👩🍳
Arugula that has bolted* will form seed pods along the stem. These seeds can actually be eaten fresh (they have a radish flavour) or dried and kept to plant next time! Some make these seeds into an oil called taramira oil which can be used for pickling, salad dressings, cooking, or even as a massage oil.
FACT OR MYTH: Some say you can chew arugula to combat sour breath! If you’ve got the opportunity, give this a try and let us know: is it fact or myth?
