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.
A new favorite! My Whole Roasted Scallions were a big hit with Wonderhubs, and are sure to be a staple in our kitchen going forward. Modern scallions still closely resembled their wild onion ancestors, in both appearance and nutritional density. Wanna eat Paleo? Then definitely include scallions! For more on the medicinal properties and health benefits of these “green onions,” check out my informative post Scallions: the Ancestral Onion.
I adore black cod. It’s one of my favorite fish. It’s got a mild flavor and buttery flesh, not unlike halibut or sea bass. In fact, of the three, my preference is for black cod. This is quite fortunate because it’s certainly cheapest!
