TASTE • EDIBLE PARTS

Arugula/Rucola/Rocket sprouts taste like rocket salad
just slightly stronger. The taste is primarily located in
the leaves and the green part of the stem, but the
lower stem also tastes a little rocket-like.
 
Rucola sprouts have to be grown on organic cotton as
you may know it from Cress. This is because the Rucola
seeds form gel when they are wet. Because if this the
seeds almost always rot when they are grown in a
sprouter made of plastic or glass. Sprouters of terracotta
on the other hand is also an option for cultivating gelling
sprouts.
 
If you grow Rucola / Arugula sprouts on cotton, you should
cut the sprouts off just above the cotton just before you eat
them. Only the stems and leaves are eaten. Roots and
cotton should be thrown in your green bin.

SIZE • APPEARANCE

Rucola sprouts are dark green in the leaves and upper
part of the stem. The lower stem is light green. The stem
is about 10 cm high. The leaves are 1x1 cm and there
are two elegantly curved leaves on each stem. The taste
is primarily located in the upper stem and leaves.
 

RECIPES WITH RUCOLA SPROUTS

You can use Rucola sprouts in your recipes just like you
would use full-grown Rucola / Rocket salad. Some choose
to blend the sprouts into homemade pesto. I make my pesto
organic arugula salad from the supermarket, but decorate
the finished dish with lots of sprouts.
 
Other times I make a salad of pine nuts, finely sliced
tomatoes, green salad, red onion, olive oil and a sea of
​​fresh organic Rucola sprouts.
