Home Garden: edition 2

Arugula

Arugula is home garden friendly. Growing fresh arugula will offer a zest to your home recipes that could not be achieved with the store bought variety. There are many helth benefits to incorporating more arugula into your diet, with high in folic acid, vitamin A, C, and K, and rich in iron and copper, your body will thank you!

Give this Arugula Pesto recipe a try to spice up sandwiches and pastas this spring.

Rosemary

Rosemary grows similar to a weed and will require little effort and a great supply. Rosemary stimulates the immune system, increases circulation, improves digestion, contains anti-inflammatory compounds, and  increase the blood flow to the brain, improving concentration. Chicken, lamb, pork, salmon, and tuna dishes will benefit from this aromatic sprig.

Add a fresh pop of flavor into dessert with this Salted Caramel Ice Cream with Pistachio and Rosemary.

Spearmint

Having access to fresh mint year round is a great resource. Within a garden, the mint plant is a bit invasive. It is best to plant mint in a large half-barrel or plastic pot and leave it outdoors year-round. Simple as that! Spearmint is packed with minerals like potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, and magnesium.

Cool down with this Spearmint Juleps recipe.

Enjoy!
