Vegan Arugula Soup With Chia Seed


On my style of cooking i focus on greens and also from raw salad i like also making  green soups and one of the green i use all time is called “Arugula” is called also rocket in Britain, roquette (France), rucola or rugola(Italy)
Native to the Mediterranean region, arugula grows wild throughout southern Europe . A close relative of the radish, arugula has slender, multilobed leaves that resemble elongated oak leaves and have a mild bite with a mustard rang. The young, more mild leaves can be eaten raw, while older, more spicy leaves are cooked and added to soups, sauces, tarts, omelettes, etc…
I discovered more about the health benefit of Arugula in 1998 when i red a book by a Dr Charles R. Attwood, MD., F.A.A.P.
The subject was about calcium and Dr Charles R. Attwood became a vegetarian for 15 years and did the whole study about : calcium without the cow.He came out with a final comparison with dairy and greens.
