Agretti, scientific name Salsola soda, also known as opposite-leaved saltwort, oppositeleaf Russian thistle or barilla plant, is a plant of the Chenopodiaceae family that is very popular in the Mediterranean Basin and widely used in Italian cuisine. We refer to the bunches of elongated leaves of a pretty bright green that are the succulent leaves of this plant. Rich in water, agretti help the body hydration, they also bring fibers, important for the proper functioning and health of the intestinal tract especially in case of constipation, but agretti have also vitamins A, B and C, mineral salts such as calcium, potassium, magnesium and iron, and chlorophyll with an antioxidant power. Agretti are beneficial to the body because they have a purifying action, are able to cleanse the blood from cholesterol and triglyceride and bring just a few calories. Agretti can be bought fresh but be careful because they are very delicate and can be kept only for a few days in the fridge. Before using them to prepare special and healthy dishes, rinse them accurately under the running water and then add them raw to salads. Alternatively, you can cook them and use them as a side dish. As for the cooking methods, you can follow two methods, you can cook the agretti in boiling water for a couple of minutes and then drain them or you can steam these vegetables, which is always the best method to preserve the nutrients.
