Townsville's Favourite

Rocket

Mix in the peppery zest of our fresh rocket into your daily dishes! This leafy green, (also known as arugula in other countries), offers a bold flavour that adds a punch to any dish. Grown in rich, fertile soil, our rocket is harvested at its peak for maximum taste and nutrition. Enjoy it raw in salads, where its spicy bite pairs beautifully with citrus and Parmesan. You can also toss it into pastas or blend it into pesto for a unique twist on classic recipes.

Selecting the freshest rocket is simple. Look for leaves that are vibrant green and free from wilting or yellowing. The stems should be firm and crisp, not slimy or limp. Fresh rocket will have a strong, peppery aroma and a slightly bitter taste. Avoid any bunches with holes or signs of pests. Smaller leaves tend to be more tender and less bitter, making them perfect for raw dishes​​.

Rocket is incredibly versatile and can be enjoyed in many delicious ways. For a quick and tasty salad, toss rocket leaves with lemon juice, olive oil, and shaved Parmesan. Add a handful to your pizza before baking for a peppery kick, or mix it into your pasta just before serving for extra freshness. You can also blend rocket with garlic, nuts, and olive oil to create a zesty pesto that pairs well with meats and vegetables .
