Ginseng recipes?

I just bought my boss a half pound of ginseng root as she has recently recovered from a serious illness. Does anyone have any recipes you can share for how to use it? I've found a few recipes on the foodnetwork sites (cdn and US) and a site called Hsu Ginseng, but does anyone have any that are tried and true? To be honest, I'm not sure she's going to like the taste, I know growing up, I hated it! So I'm hoping extra yummy recipes might make up for the bitterness... thanks!

  1. You can download several recipes from my book Ginseng, the Divine Root at I tried all the recipes before including them and can attest that they're delicious. (I cooked up the ginseng beef for a group at the Baltimore Book Festival and all the tasters agreed). Enjoy!
