How to Enjoy it:

Slice the raw root and mix in a salad, cook in a stew or cut into bite-sized pieces and roast in the oven for 15 minutes. Leaves taste good in soup, can be cooked in boiling water for 1 minute and eaten like spinach, or the young leaves can be eaten raw in a salad. The red kabu - both root and stems - keeps their beautiful colour even after cooking.
