    Default Kinpira Gobo

    I cooked this tonight. I usually don't measure anything when I cooks so this recipe isn't exactly the same as what I did but close enough

    Gobo has lots of fibre, for those who may be constipated

    Kinpira Gobo Recipe - Japanese Recipe

    INGREDIENTS:
    • 1/2 pound gobo (burdock root)
    • 1/4 pound carrot
    • 1 tbsp soysauce
    • 1 tbsp sugar
    • 1 1/2 tbsp mirin
    • 1/2 sake
    • 1 tsp sesame seeds
    • 2 tsps vegetable oil
    PREPARATION:
    Peel the burdock and shred it into very thin strips. Soak the burdock strips in water for a while and drain well. Peel the carrot and cut it into short and thin strips. Put vegetable oil in a frying pan and put it on high heat. Add burdock strips and fry for a couple minutes. Add carrot strips in the pan and fry for a minute. Add all seasonings in the pan and stir well. Turn off the heat.

    *Makes 4 servings
    from http://japanesefood.about.com/od/veg...inpiragobo.htm

    You can substitue mirin with some sherry. I just usually use sake alone. And, you can add some dried red chilli peppers, kinpira is supposed to be a little spicy. I didn't have any chilli peppers on hand tonight so I put in just black pepper and some shichimi togarashi (Japanese all spice, has 7 different pepper spices).

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    Sounds like something I'd like to try, Mooms. Where do you get the burdock root and other Japanese ingredients?

    I've probably just never noticed it because I wasn't looking for it.

    You can find gobo/burdock root at any Asian grocery stores e.g. China town, T&T supermarket. Oh PB, maybe you can stop by at Yaohan centre on your way home from Kwantlen, they have a T&T there. They should also have mirin and shichimi togarashi (spice isle).
