Burdock=Butt (vegan day 3)
So when I told people that one of my recipe's for this week called for Burdock it was mostly met with crinkled noses and disgust. I don't think I know anyone who regularly eats Burdock so I can see why. I was extremely curious to see how todays dinner would go considering that it called for the Burdock.. Well it suprised me in that it didn't taste like poop, yeah I know I'm a positive thinker. :)
It tasted like you would imagine a piece of root tasting. yum.. but with enough ginger and soy sauce it was decent.
So I started out with ginger and sesame sauce in a pan simmering, then I added some onion until it was transluscent. After this I added some Burdock, Carrots, Mushrooms, Cabbage and simmered these for about 5 minutes. On top of this I added some brown rice and raw broccoli added about 1/4 inch of water and some soy sauce and covered for about 10 minutes. I served warm with some Brown Rice Vinegar. It was pretty good!
