Lettuce Wrap with Burdock Root
Kathleen YAU, Executive Committee of Hong Kong Nutrition Association, said "The dish has a unique texture. Burdock root, soya bean sprout and yard long-bean are crunchy vegetables. When compared to duck meat that is more commonly used as stuffing, this combination is lower in fat content. The flavour of shiitake mushroom will give you an unforgettable taste."
