Kimpira | Stir-fry burdock and carrot
Kimpira is one of my favorite veggie side dish. Have you ever taster this? Or some of you may have seen them in a bento box. I want to eat this at every meal and everyday. Kimpira is a stir-fry veggie dish with say sauce, mirin, sake and sugar. But Kimpira usually with burdock and carrot. You can cut into various sizes and shapes. When I feel like biting chunks, I cut them into big pieces. I hope you enjoy this simple and easy dish!
