Just wondering if here in Australia I can substitute Rocket for Mizuna in recipes?
Cant find Mizuna anywhere near me, but have some lovely looking recipes...
Thanks!

mizuna is a vegitable.

it is season now !
nearly no special taste, no flavor. but if growing large, it is a little bitter.
it can be used mainly for "nabe" in Kansai area(Osaka,Kyoto)

Rocket (or arugula as we call it in the US) might have a little stronger flavor than mizuna, but should otherwise be a reasonable substitution for most recipes.

As above, mizuna doesn't have a strong flavour at all so if you use rocket you will end up with quite a different-tasting dish. No reason it wouldn't still be edible though!

Even better! Funny thing is, I just ate at a restaurant the other day where they were promoting a variation of one of their regular dishes. It was basically just substituting rocket as a garnish in place of the regular mizuna.

yep definitely grow it. it grows really easily.

if you put it in the ground and just cut it off a few CM from the ground level, it will regrow after a few weeks and be ready for harvesting again.

easy stuff to grow. lettuce too.
