Make the most of this great-tasting ingredient in store now

NEED TO KNOW

With its peppery, bittersweet flavour, rocket is a salad star.

HOW TO

Try it with juicy figs and grilled halloumi, earthy lentils and roasted onions and seared steak, blue cheese and walnuts. And this leaf’s versatility doesn’t end there: blitz with pear, fennel and lemon for an invigorating juice, strew over ricotta-topped toasts or serve with a cheesy, herb-flecked omelette.

TOP TIP

Rocket goes by a few different names. If you see rucola, arugula or rockette on a menu or ingredient list rest assured, it’s all the same thing.
