Rocket (or arugula for the Americans out there) persists in quiet superiority as the best tasting, most versatile, and easiest to prepare of the common greens. All it has ever done is help make things delicious: It’s great as a crunchy filling for sandwiches, piled atop a Neapolitan pizza, or as a nutritious base for a salad.
It shouldn’t have to provide all that pleasant, peppery flavour just to reside in a vegetal purgatory between the broad commonality of spinach and kale’s trendy coastal dominance. The vegetable has brought more than enough to the table to earn the ubiquity it’s never had. Washed, packed and ready to go.
