Peppery arugula

July 21, 2009 ,

Arugula, a cruciferous plant with an amazingly “nutty mustardy” flavour is extremely beneficial to health.

In ancient times, many medicinal virtues were attributed to it, and it was once considered an aphrodisiac. During the past few decades, it has started gaining popularity in North America, especially among food lovers and health food enthusiasts.

The fact that it grows very easily here in Quebec delights all gardeners, both the lazy ones and the ones in a big hurry!

Due to its very pungent taste, it is normally not eaten on its own. Why not try it in a salad like in our Cabbage and Arugula Salad recipe or in a Pesto Sauce with Arugula.
