yright John Paul Urizar
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
In an oven proof pan with a lid, heat the olive oil and add the leeks and chopped dill. Saute for 4 - 5 minutes. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the fish stock and add the rest to the pan with the beans.
Note: Kudzu, like ginger is a tuber and can be used as a thickener for sauces. Being alkaline, the Japanese use it for medicinal purposes to help settle the stomach and promote digestion. It is a white chalk like substance and can be found in health food stores.
