Lotus root grows underground in bodies of water. Underneath the thin skin, the flesh ranges in color from ivory to white and is crisp, light, and starchy. Lotus root has a dense and crunchy texture with a nutty and sweet flavor, similar to that of a water chestnut or taro root.
Lotus root is best suited for steaming, frying, braising, stir-frying, and boiling. Lotus root can be blanched just slightly to remove any bitterness, cooled, and added to salads. It can also be sliced and braised until tender in soups, stir-fried, battered and fried into tempura, or thinly sliced and baked into chips.
