Rocket leaves have a strong, distinctive, nutty, peppery, mustard flavour. The leaves, flowers and young seed pods can be added to mixed green salads to add colour and flavour. The younger leaves have a milder taste and the older leaves are more peppery. Rocket is also a perfect addition in sandwiches. Combined with tomatoes and mozzarella cheese/ or shavings of parmesan it makes a popular hors d’oevre. Rocket can be lightly cooked like spinach and served as a vegetable. Rocket flowers are delicious in stir fries and soups — added at the last minute.
