I think I am addicted. Or maybe just deeply indulged in a guilty pleasure, yet not so guilty.
Yes you heard correctly. I said Arugula other wise known as Rocket, roquette, rucola, or its scientific name, Eruca Sativa. It's peppery bitter bite is refreshing and quite enjoyable. I've found myself stuffing my face with the greens all by themselves. I treat them almost as popcorn. I take a big bowl of it and just chomp away. Usually I then get caught in the middle of a huge hand full and look like a cow caught in the middle of a grazing in a pasture.
If my personal experience shave not been enough to convince you to give arugula a try, the nutritional aspects of arugula may also persuade you to give it a try. Arugula is high in vitamins, low in fat and calories and high in flavor. Come over to the green side and try some Arugula today!
Tips: Arugula pairs beautifully with fatty & acidic things. Ex: Four Cheese with Arugula Lemon Salad Pizza
