Healthy Arugula Recipes

Healthy Arugula Recipes

   I love arugula. Maybe too much, since I “accidentally” planted multiple packets of arugula seeds in my raised bed in the garden. Oops. I can’t help it. Arugula is easy to grow (learn more about how to grow arugula in this post) and grows quickly, and I even love the fragrant peppery smell while I am harvesting it! Since I had an abundance of arugula staring at me, I started making my go-to arugula recipe: Goat Cheese Arugula Pizza. However, after eating that 4 times in a week (not kidding here, it is SOOOO good!), I’ve decided I need some new Arugula-focused recipes for my next harvest (which is coming up! I love how quickly arugula grows). As I was gathering healthy arugula recipes, I noticed something: these recipes are beautiful! There is just something artistically pretty about these leaves.

We have started a lovely tradition where we both choose toppings for our homemade pizza and we also make it together. Let’s face it: everyone likes different toppings on their pizza. My husband and I have found that making pizza together helps us chat about our days while compromising on toppings. The results are that we not only have lots of fun making our dinner together, but...

How to Grow Arugula

How to Grow Arugula

How to Grow Arugula/Rocket **Arugula, also known as Rocket, is typically an early summer vegetable from the Brassica family (this family also includes: Kale, Cauliflower, Brussel Sprouts, etc.). **With a slightly peppery taste, Arugula gives salads a nice bite, or can even be used as a salad itself.     **You do not have to be a professional gardener to grow Arugula. It is very hardy, very cheap, and grows very quickly.         **However, this is not a perennial. When you cut down one crop of Arugula, you should throw more seeds in the same area so that you can have more Arugula in a few weeks. Better yet, every few weeks, throw out some more seeds so that you have a continual supply of this amazing plant. **Arugula is one of the first plants you can start growing in the Early Spring. Check out my post on Early Spring Garden Planning to learn about other plants you can grow early. **In addition, Arugula is an excellent source of folic acid...
