ORGANIC WILD ROCKET LEAVES (100G)
Wild Rocket is an ideal replacement for normal Salad Rocket and is used widely in French and Italian cuisine. Wild Rocket has a more intense and pungent flavour than Salad Rocket, so it adds a distinctive taste to green salads. It may be used with other greens, nuts or fruit and topped with dressings, included in stir fry dishes or steamed lightly with other vegetables. It may be used as garnish on pizzas, meat dishes or in a sandwich. The flowers are also edible and can be added to similar dishes. The older leaves can be quite bitter and hot in taste, so these are best reserved for cooked dishes.
There are many health benefits to consuming Wild Rocket since it contains Vitamins A, C, and K, calcium, magnesium, iron, copper and other nutrients. It has been used medicinally for different purposes throughout its history and contains glucosinolates, phytochemicals such as carotenoids, and polyphenols. Specific actions include astringent, diuretic, emollient, tonic, laxative, and stimulant.
