    Hi Whollygrail, the method calls for 2-4 T of water? Im not sure what measurement the T stands for? Also, is Arugula the same as rocket?

      Thanks for the query Lance. That would be my old school recipe writing. A capital T used to stand for tablespoon (and lower case for teaspoon). So here the recipe calls for Tablespoons.
      Arugula and rocket are indeed the same thing! Arugula is the word more commonly used in America and rocket is more local to us here in Australia – we’ll make sure to include both references for our community in each country. Thank you !!
