Lotus Root Soup
In school, many years back, we were asked to bring this for art class. We used it for stamping on our art block paper. Other vegetables for this art class were the humble potato and the okra/ladies fingers. Oh, you could also use the banana leaf stems/petioles.
No, I was not doing any art, just reminiscing while cooking some lotus root soup. You can boil these with some stock bones, peanuts, dates and dried squid/octopus.
I also love sliced lotus roots in tempura but not all Japanese restaurants here serve lotus root tempura.
What is your favourite lotus root dish?
