Hydrofresh Hydroponics - Arugula Micro Greens - 2 oz.
Hydroponically grown and harvested while the plants are still young and tender, Micro Arugula greens are very small in size, averaging 5-7 centimeters in length, and have 2-4 gently lobed, heart-shaped leaves connected to a slender stem. The bright green leaves are delicate, smooth, flat, tender, and thin, and are attached to a flexible light green stem. Though mild in comparison to fully grown arugula leaves, Micro Arugula is crisp, green, and has an initial nutty flavor with a hint of sweetness that fades into a peppery, earthy, and pungent bite. Packed with nutrition, available year-round.
Micro Arugula contains vitamins A, B, C, and E, calcium, iron, potassium, antioxidants, magnesium, and phosphorus.
Micro Arugula greens are intended for raw preparations, specifically as a garnish for an extra layer of flavor and texture. Though small, young, and tender, their peppery bite is best suited for savory dishes. They are best left undressed, added only at the very final stage of finishing dishes such as pasta, soups, salads, omelets, or vegetable plates. They can also be sprinkled over boiled potatoes and served as a side dish. The delicate leaves will wilt if exposed to prolonged heat and do not stand up to heavy dressings or sauces. Micro Arugula pairs well with cheeses such as Parmesan, feta, chevre, blue cheese, gorgonzola, and mozzarella, nuts such as walnuts, pine nuts, and pecans, avocado, balsamic vinegar, lemon, mint, cucumber, tomato, olives, garlic, beets, fennel, pears, grapes, prosciutto, and roast beef. They will keep 5-7 days when stored unwashed, in a sealed container, and in the refrigerator.
