Rocket is principally used in the kitchen as a raw addition to salads. Nonetheless, this particular, bitter tasting herb is also appreciated in fish based first courses, in vegetable soups and as an accompaniment to raw meats.
Rocket, like the other herbs, has a distinct use in the medicinal field.
Its properties stimulate the production of gastric juices, thereby encouraging digestion.
And that’s not all! Rocket is also an excellent natural diuretic and, when consumed as an infusion, acts as a relaxant. Finally, cooked rocket provides benefits for people suffering from liver problems.
