    Akikobay's Note:

    Honestly, I'm not sure I even expect anybody to try this, but it's one of my favorite side vegies. Gobo (burdock root) is really high in fiber and is a bit like tofu in that it takes on the flavor of whatever you happen to cook it with. Don't skip the soaking. Gobo does stain your fingers when you handle it, so you might want to use gloves if you are planning to go out after dinner. Preparation time includes soaking time for the burdock root, but not the time to peel and julienne the burdock root. It takes my mom about 3 minutes, it takes me longer.

      I discovered gobo last week at a local Japanese market and I had to use it. I just love discovering new ingredients. I found this kinpira recipe and others and I picked this recipe as the one to showcase Japan as we are cooking around the world with 2 friends right now:

      I paired it with mackerel, white rice with furikake and... sake of course!

      The local co-op has burdock root at the moment, so I brought sushi home from last night, and made this as a side for the wife. I liked it, but she LOVED it.

      Thanks for sharing this. We have burdock growing wild in the back yard (tough stuff to get rid of), so I think we'll be doing quite a bit of this next summer.
