Kinpira Gobo

I grew up eating this dish, and every time I have it I feel a great connection to my Japanese heritage. Of course it doesn't hurt that it's easy to make, healthy, and delicious. I've trimmed down the usual number of ingredients, relying on the spices to provide much of the flavor. And if you can't find burdock I've included some other ideas below; it's a great way to save vegetable stems from the compost.
