This is one of my favorite ways to prepare burdock root. Tender cooked slices are dressed in a nutty coconut sauce that highlights the root’s natural sweetness. In Japanese cuisine burdock is often paired with creamy sauces made from toasted sesame seeds or miso. Using toasted Coconut Manna imparts a similar flavor and texture for a dish that’s reminiscent of traditional favorites and yet excitingly new.

Burdock root is a highly medicinal food that supports antimicrobial health and liver function, making it a great vegetable for Spring cleanses and seasonal immune boosting.
