Arugula is a leafy plant belonging to the plant family of Brassicaceae. Arugula is a leaf vegetable related to broccoli, kale, and cabbage. Arugula leaves have a tart, bitter, and peppery taste, and the older the leaf vegetable gets, the stronger the bitter-peppery taste becomes.
Arugula is the perfect leafy vegetable to cook to use in steak, pork, and chicken dishes. Because of its pepper-bitter taste, it balances out perfectly when stewed. Stew down a healthy portion of Arugula using olive oil, pepper, and salt to create a bed of greens to place your favorite poultry on top. Easy and fast to prepare to complete or complement a meal.
