Wild Rocket (Arugula) Salad 100g
Being a member of Brassica family, arugula leaves are rich sources of certain phytochemicals such as indoles, thiocyanates, sulforaphane, and isothiocyanates. Together, these compounds have been found to counter carcinogenic effects of estrogen and thus may offer protection against prostate, breast, cervical, colon, ovarian cancers by virtue of their cancer-cell growth inhibition, cytotoxic effects on cancer cells.
- Young tender rocket leaves are a great addition to salads, in sandwiches, and burgers.
- Fresh greens can be used in soups, stews, juices, and cooked as a vegetable.
- Prepare Italian style arugula pasta with added goat cheese.
