While in japan, I recently discovered gobo. I guess here in the states it is also called Burdock. I found some at my asian grocery store – its sort of like a turnip. Anyway, served up with some carrots and a light sauce its really delicous and really healthy – filled with fiber!
2 T soy sauce
2 T mirin
2 T vegetarian dashi powder
Peel and slice your carrots and gobo at a 90 degree angle. Prep a wok with a little bit of oil and add gobo and carrots to pot. Stir fry around for about 5 minutes, then add soy sauce, mirin and vegetarian dashi. Let cook for another 4-5 minutes, then add a little bit of water to the pan to get it to sizzle and cook up some of the sauce. Let cook for about 5 minutes more and serve.
