The Instacart guide to arugula
Known for its distinctive dirt flavor, arugula has been served in dishes since the time of the Ancient Romans, who used it as a potent aphrodisiac. In fact, love potions were made with arugula, and it was considered good luck! Since then, arugula seeds have been pressed to make taramira oil.
Arugula has a peppery, spicy, and slightly tart flavor. The leaves are tender with a crisp stem, much like raw spinach, and when cooked, arugula resembles the delicate texture of cooked spinach. The flavor of cooked arugula is more mellow than when raw, with a very light spicy bite. Once thought to be exotic, it adds a peppery dimension to salads, soups, pizza, and omelets.
Since it is so often used as part of spring salad mixes, you may be surprised to learn that arugula is actually a cabbage and mustard family member. It is a fantastic addition to make a peppery fresh pesto sauce. Replace half the basil in the pesto recipe with fresh arugula. The result will be a peppery, fresh alternative to the pesto you're familiar with. Serve with a spring salad with fresh arugula, and you'll have an amazing meal. You can also add arugula to salads; its peppery flavor pairs well with other strong flavors, like salty cheeses, tomatoes, carrots, and more. If you've never tried arugula on top of pizza, try adding it to your next pie!
