Arugula is pretty easy to come by here in Paris. And I think at 14€ a kilo even President Obama would approve! I paid 78 centimes for the organic arugula in this recipe.

Arugula is an excellent source of antioxidants, rich in vitamins A and C, folic acid, calcium, manganese, and magnesium. It contains carotenes and chlorophyll and is also a very good source of potassium, iron, zinc, riboflavin, and copper.

I love the flavor of this soup and call me lazy but it’s nice to have a break from chewing!
