Um, that counts!

My plan for lunch didn't work out, so I got a subway sandwich instead. Not too bad on the calories, but not great either. I managed a chicken breast and spinach for superfoods.

WaterRat ... rocket ... also commonly known as 'dandelion leaves' ... you know, the weeds that grow in lawns with yellow flowers?

I've never heard of dandelion referred to as 'arugula'...I buy both dandelion and arugula from the organic produce market and they are distinctly different, in my experience Here's some good info:

Yogini ... Right or wrong, I have definitely heard of 'rocket' being referred to as 'dandelion' in the UK ... by chefs non the less I guess the rocket that I buy is a bit smaller than a dandelion leaf (or at least the ones that used to grow in my garden! ) I would imagine that they are from the same 'family' though as they look very similar and both have a peppery taste ... I guess that's where the mistake is made.

Anyway, it was definitely 'rocket' in my sandwich

Chefs, eh?

Well, we all pass on what we have learned and since things in various parts of the world are (as you know firsthand ) called different things, it's not that much of a suprise.

Did you check out those links? One has a great recipe for arugula pesto. I LOVE arugula pesto and I make it vegan and mix it with basil. YUM!

As far as the plants being related, I don't believe that they are. Arugula is Eruca sativa, Diplotaxis tenuifolia and Diplotaxis muralis whereas dandelion is Taraxacum, a large genus of flowering plants in the family Asteraceae.

I personally prefer arugula (rocket) to dandelion greens and use it a lot more as I find it peppery, a bit rich tasting and not really too bitter (unlike dandelion!).

Yogini, as I can't even get my tongue around those names, I'll take your word for it! Love the sound of the 'arugula' pesto ... or is it 'rocket'?
