COOK TIME05 min
1/2 daikon root peeled, sliced on the diagonal
1 burdock root, peeled, sliced on the diagonal
1 carrot, peeled, sliced on the diagonal
1 small piece ginger root, sliced or grated
1 c. water
1 Tbsp. tamari (or soy sauce), more to taste
5 medium shiitake mushrooms, sliced
1 handful kale
scallion, sesame seeds, kimchi to garnish
Place roots, carrot, ginger, water and tamari in a shallow pan. Cover and let simmer on low heat until roots are tender (5-7 minutes).
Add shiitakes, cover and simmer for a couple more minutes, then add kale on top. Cover for one more minute and turn off heat so kale becomes tender but not soft.
Serve in a bowl, garnished with sliced scallions, sesame seeds, and kimchi if you like spice.
Goes great with brown rice.
