Lotus Root is not a common vegetable in the west. But it is very common throughout Asia. We love that it is so crunchy and savory. We have created hundreds of different recipes for it. Here is how I cook Lotus Root with just 2 ingredients.
1 Fresh lotus root
1 bunch Chinese leeks
Peel and slice the lotus root.
Wash and chop Chinese leeks to 1 inch long.
Stir fry the lotus root until slightly brown on each side. High heat. 7 mins or so.
Season with salt, nutritional yeast and red pepper flakes to taste.
Add the Chinese leeks at the very last min.
