Superfood Mashup: Sweet Potatoes and Burdocks

Sweet potatoes are famous superfoods eaten a lot in the Southern part of Japan including Okinawa, the island of longevity. Burdocks are known for having a lot of dietary fiber. When you chew burdocks, you feel the fiber, as if the entire vegetable consists of fiber.

So, I made a dish using both of them.

I steamed sliced burdocks and sweet potatoes. Then I mashed the sweet potatoes. I also mashed chickpeas and mixed them together with soy milk, brown rice vinegar, olive oil, sea salt, mayonnaise, and sesamiseeds.  There I added the steamed burdock slices.

It was delicious.


I had it on the night of the full moon in Libra.
