Burdock roots are very fibrous, resulting in soft, stringy, cotton-like material when cut. This innermost part of the root and contains the same constituents as the more woody outer pieces. The root is native to Europe and North Asia but can be found in many areas across the globe. The burdock plant is a genus that is related to both sunflowers and some members of the daisy family.

Burdock root is commonly used in stews, soups, sauteed vegetables, and teas. It is also used as a vegetable by itself and delivers an earthy, sweet and mild taste that complements other flavors. It can be mixed with other teas or brewed by itself.



To prepare as a tea, pour 8 oz. boiling water over 1 tsp. of herb. Cover and steep 3-5 minutes, strain and serve immediately.

Suggested Uses

Use it to accent Japanese miso soup (tonjiru), rolled sushi, vegetable dishes, and more.
