Arugula or rocket belongs to the mustard family and has a distinctive peppery flavor. The young fresh leaves are pungent but pleasant.
Rocket leaves are the green salad leaves that are nutrient rich. This is because they contain the light-catching, energy-converting machinery of plants. Salad greens contain Vitamin A, Vitamin C, beta-carotene, calcium, folate, fiber, and phytonutrients. They are also a bitter herb making them an excellent food for liver health.
