Thoroughly enjoyed my first taste of Lotus Root using this recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the sliced lotus root into vinegar water as you slice it, as described above. Drain well just before cooking.
  2. Heat up a large frying pan with the oil. Add ginger and garlic, and stir fry until the oil is very fragrant.
  3. Add the drained lotus root slices in a single layer. Cook until the lotus root slices start to change color - they turn a bit translucent looking. Turn over and cook a couple more minutes.
  4. Add the chili pepper and green onions, and stir-fry. Add the sesame seeds, pepper, soy sauce and sesame oil.
  5. The lotus roots should get a bit caramelized from the soy sauce. Serve hot or cold. This is very nice for bento.
