The most valuable thing in arugula leaves is its nice spicy flavor. Italy gave the world the most famous recipes with arugula, where the leaves of the plant are added to various dishes — pizzas, sauces, salads. In cooking arugula is used both as separate ingredient and as a seasoning for favourite dishes. Arugula is specialy delicious in salads. The only thing this plant «does not like» is a high temperature, so it’s not recommended to fry or boil it because in the process of thermal heating arugula loses its useful properties.
