The lotus root is a root vegetable that is indigenous to Asia, and is found underwater. The meat of the lotus root has a texture that is slightly crunchy, and mildly sweet. They can be eaten as fruit, sliced and stir fried, or stuffed with glutinous rice in its flue-shaped holes and steamed as dessert. Tender young lotus roots are good for salads while starchy mature lotus roots are good for making soups.
