ごぼう

Gobo is burdock root and a very popular vegetable in Japan. It is hard and looks like a tree root, but it gets quite soft when cooked and then it has a mild but distinct flavor.  Though Gobo doesn’t contain very many vitamins, it has a lot of fiber and minerals.  There may be a detox effect on you if you eat regularly.  Gobo can be used in Nimono (boiled and seasoned vegetables), Miso Soup, salads, and many many more dishes. It is often cut Sasagaki (between shaved and sliced) with a knife or peeler, like when you sharpen your pencils with knife.

在日本菜中,不難發現牛蒡的蹤影,可以是前菜小碟湯水,亦可以在主菜熱葷,原來這亦是令日本成為全世界最長壽的民族的秘密,因為日本人就是經常食用牛蒡,視為養生食療。

牛蒡屬於根莖類食物,幾乎零脂肪,並以纖維高見稱,纖維含量是紅蘿蔔的2.6倍,椰菜花的3倍,其豐富的纖維可以促進大腸蠕動,幫助排便和清除體內垃圾,降低體內膽固醇、血脂,減少毒素和廢物在體內囤積,進而減少罹患大腸癌、胃癌的風險。本身牛蒡含有抑制腫瘤生長的物質—牛蒡甙元,有助消除人體內的致癌物質「活性氧」。
