How to Cook Kinpira Broccoli

      I cooked kinpira, a traditional Japanese side dish. Kinpira is commonly used to cook burdock root and carroto, which is called kinpira gobo. Burdock root is called gobo in Japanese. This time, I used broccoli for kinpira because I wanted to use up Trader Joe's Broccoli Slaw which I bought a while ago. You can get gobo at Asian supermarkets, but if you do not have Asian supermarkets nearby your home, you can substitute broccoli for gobo. I'm going to share how to cook it with you.
