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!

Mrs. Jim started with leek soup. It cured me, and her to.
Will you be eating fish and/or dairy products?

I have never heard of burdock. Is there something special about it? You know like high in protein or something?

hey Trace, neither had I. Not to my knowledge I looked it up on the internet and found it did have protein but not alot.
