Have you ever eaten burdock root called GOBO in Japanese? It has crunchy texture and mild earthy flavor.
Burdock root is high in fiber and rich in polyphenols. It is widely used for homemade dishes in Northern Asia.
Because burdock root has a thin skin, you actually don’t need to peel. Just scrub with a vegetable brush or the back of a knife. In addition, the burdock root gets discolored after scrubbing the surface by oxidation of polyphenols. This is natural and doesn’t harm you.
Today I will introduce you crunchy burdock root chips.
