That’s a close-up of Arugula! Ohhh my are we ready for some fresh, slightly spicy, pungent, wonderful arugula! It is so fantastically tastey. This veggie, though, stirs strong reaction – you’ll have definite opinions about this green! Have at it this week – tell us what you think!
A quick steaming, or a very quick pan wilting of arugula will settle the taste some – making it mellow and much more mild. This prep – wilting of arugula – is really good with a pasta dish. Arugula and pasta are fabulous together.
Or, eat it raw! Mix it with some of this week’s head lettuce, shredded. It’s really good and strong straight too. It’s got a flavor all its own!
