Burdock Root Combines Healing Power With Earthy Flavor

Burdock Root Combines Healing Power With Earthy Flavor

January 23, 2019

Looking at burdock roots is like looking at soil that has come to life. They are golden brown with the smell and appearance of healthy, nutrient-rich soil.  When cooked and eaten, such as in stir-fries, you wouldn’t expect sweetness to emerge, but their sweet “overtone” is unmistakable.


I love eating burdock root just about any way I can get it.  I don’t like growing burdock root in my garden, however, because the next thing you know, you have a burdock-root problem.  Burdock roots spread with a tenaciousness not found in most plants.  The burdock “burrs” apparently were the inspiration for Velcro because of their ability to stick to just about anything, including your pants or your dog.


Because it’s best avoided in the garden and rarely appears even in the best health-food stores, it can be challenging to incorporate the detoxification and cell-regenerative properties of burdock root into your daily diet.*  This is where our Burdock Root Powder comes in. 


Having been a fan and proponent of burdock since my macrobiotic days four decades ago, now I’m able to harness the power of burdock root almost daily.  I put a teaspoon of our powder in our morning soup, and we have even started using it in salad dressings (see recipe).   Burdock root adds a lovely, earthy flavor to many dishes, thereby highlighting the most important principle behind all our products: the marriage of the healing power of plant foods with incredible flavor.
