This recipe pays homage to fresh and flavorful arugula and will delight you with its vibrant array of flavors.
Arugula, also known as rocket or romaine lettuce, is a leafy green vegetable prized in many cuisines around the world for its slightly pungent flavor and delicate texture. This vitamin-rich plant is not only delicious, but also extremely healthy. It is an excellent source of vitamins A and K, as well as minerals such as calcium and iron.
What makes arugula special is its spicy flavor, which gives risotto a unique character. When arugula is made into pesto, it creates a sauce that enlivens risotto with freshness and a pleasant spiciness.
