    Grace Lynn's Note:

    Lotus roots can be found in Oriental markets. They look like vegetable sausages, a few inches long and about three inches in diameter. The flavor is somewhat reminiscent of a water chestnut as is the texture...very fresh and crisp tasting! When sliced they have an intriguing, lacy cross section that comes from air channels in the root. Lotus roots make a nice addition to soups too!

      Pretty good, but I don't think it's quite my taste. This was my first time tasting Lotus Root, so I didn't quite know what to expect. The root itself has a strong flavor, which overpowered the soy sauce mixture. I think I might like it stir-fried better. I added shredded carrot and a little fresh ginger and used pre-sliced lotus root instead of fresh.

      This tasted best after sitting in the refrigerator overnight. It's crunchy with a bit of zing.
