Cooking with arugula

Arugula, which is called rocket or roquette in Europe and Australia, provides generous portions of vital nutrients — including vitamin K, vitamin A and folate. In addition, arugula salad is a good source of eye-healthy beta carotene in the form of carotenoids called lutein and zeaxanthin.

But even more than individual vitamins and minerals, arugula is known to provide special chemical compounds called isothiocyanates, which have anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative activities. This makes it a great addition to a healing diet that can reverse signs of aging and disease.
