Lotus roots is really a versatile vegetable. Is not only for making soup but you can use it for stir-fry, pickle, stew, make chips and even eat it raw as a salad. One of my favorite way of cooking it is a quick stir-frying with some vegetables. I like the sweet crunchy taste if it.

half a carrot - sliced
1 red pepper - cut into chunks
