Lana's thoughts on healing Gentle Detox with Braised Burdock, Mushroom and Seaweed September 10, 2015

Burdock Root is called ‘Gobo’ in Japanese and is often sold under this name. It’s cooked in a similar way to a carrot and looks a little like one too (except it’s brown on the outside and white on the inside). The taste of burdock is pleasant and a little earthy. In many parts of Asia, burdock is a normal everyday root vegetable that is seen as being very good for the health, especially for the liver and the skin.
