Organic Arugula-Colorado produced

 

Arugula Recipes

Arugula is popular in Italy and Southern France, where it has been grown and eaten for centuries. It is typically found in mesclun mixes, but makes a wonderful salad on its own.

It has a strong peppery flavor (some compare it to a gentle horseradish; others say it is more like mustard greens) that is tempered with cooking.

Nutrition: Arugula is a nutritional powerhouse, containing significant folate (folic acid) and calcium. Exceptionally high in beta carotene, vitamin C, and a good source of iron, Arugula is a member of the same family as cabbage and broccoli and like all such vegetables, it contains cancer-fighting phytochemicals called indoles.

Like all our Salad Greens, our Arugula is grown using sustainable methods: lots of organic compost, and the occasional soap spray to control aphids. Organic produce available this week in Colorado Springs

Arugula Pasta
 
Arugula cooks up like spinach but has its own special flavor, and the coarsely chopped bread crumbs in this recipe absorb the garlic/oil flavors, adding an interesting texture.
