Bamboo Shoots

Bamboo Shoot
Bamboo is a member of the woody grass family. Bamboo shoots are edible new growth that harvested from the bamboo plant.  Bamboo shoots are low in fat and calories, also a good source of fiber and potassium (heart-healthy mineral that helps to maintain normal blood pressure and a steady heart beat). To prepare fresh bamboo shoots for cooking, peel off the outer layers to reveal the core, which is typically slice into thin strips and then blanch in boiling water to remove its natural bitterness.  Do not eat bamboo shoots raw because it has bitter tasting and hard to digest.

Bamboo shoots can be cooked in various ways. Here I would like to share one of my favorite recipes.
