Aptly named, rocket is a su­per leaf — one bite, and it feels like a lit­tle rocket is go­ing off in your mouth. Wild rocket has been around for cen­turies, while more re­cently, the cul­ti­vated va­ri­ety has been hit­ting our green­gro­cers’ shelves. Both are won­der­ful in sal­ads and pestos, but they’re also great cooked. The hot, pep­pery flavour soft­ens, giv­ing a won­der­fully savoury,

al­most bit­ter bite, which is very welcome in casseroles, soups and pasta dishes. It only takes a few sec­onds to cook, so just chop the leaves and stir in at the last minute.
