15 Easy Rocket Recipes | olivemagazine

When is rocket in season?

Rocket is incredibly easy to grow and is available all year round.

Why we love rocket

Rocket’s vibrant, peppery flavour makes it stand out in green salads. The strong flavour makes it a good match for mild, creamy cheeses and dairy. It’s most often eaten just as it is, in salads, scattered over pizza or blitzed into dips and pesto, but it can also be cooked by wilting through pasta dishes or adding to soups.

Health benefits of rocket

Rocket counts as one of your five-a-day. It is a good source of vitamin C and is also high in folate.
