The Fast Root


Preparation time: 30 minutes. Grating or shredding fresh roots before cooking increases their already abundant energy. This food/medicine gives optimum nutrition for great strength, staying power, rooted energy, and creativity. Serves four.


  • 1 tablespoon/15ml olive oil
  • 1 burdock root*, grated
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 1 parsnip, grated
  • 1 Tbs/15ml dark sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon/5ml tamari
  • handful water

*or salsify, sunchoke, wild carrot root, turnip, or cattail roots.


Heat oil. Add shredded or grated roots. (Soak burdock in vinegar water before grating; do not par-boil.) Saute while stirring for five minutes or so. Then toss in water, tamari, and sesame oil. Cover well and cook until tender, roughly ten minutes more.
