Ingredient of the Day-Rocket

This spin-dally leafy green plant will have more meaning to me than you will ever know. I first started to learn about rocket from Donna Hay’s cookbook, where it initially peaked my interest. Then as I furthered my culinary education I learned more at the salad station at Susan Goin’s restaurant where she instills a love and passion for edible leafy green plants within every bite. Often found growing in the Mediterranean region from Morocco to Portugal. This spin-dally leafy green plant provides a rich, peppery taste, with an exceptionally strong flavor that is richly packed with vitamin C and potassium.

Happy Cooking!
