Burdock with Fresh Thyme
1 burdock root (about 8 ounces), scrubbed and trimmed, but not peeled
2 T lemon juice
1 T extra-virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
3 T dry white wine
2 tsp fresh thyme or 1/2 tsp dried
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Cut burdock crosswise into 1/4"thick slices; as you work, drop burdock into
bowl of water with a little lemon juice to prevent discoloration. In a
medium saucepan, bring 1 quart water and 1 T of lemon juice to a boil over
high heat. Add burdock; return to a boil.
Reduce to a simmer and cook 10 minutes or until burdock is tender. Drain.
In a medium nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and
saute 30 seconds until garlic is fragrant. Add drained burdock and cook one
minute or until lightly coated. Add wine, thyme, salt, pepper, and
remaining 1 T lemon juice and cook one to two minutes to blend flavors.
