Basic Burdock Rice
This potato-like root soaks up salty spices.

1/2 cup burdock, thinly sliced (substitute: canned water chestnuts)
2 vegetable bouillon cubes (for 2 cups of water)
1 cup instant brown rice (try Success-brand "Boil-in-a-Bag Brown Rice")
1 tbs. tamari soy sauce
1 tbs. olive oil or other vegetable oil
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. sage
1 tsp. rosemary

At Home
Combine all dry ingredients in a zip-top bag. Pour wet ingredients into separate plastic containers.

At Camp
Slice water chestnuts or burdock into 1/16-inch slices. Combine all ingredients in a quart-size pot. Cover, and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed. Serves 4.
