Lotus Root Meat Pie

Yin Zhou


Lotus roots are planted in the soil at the bottom of ponds, and above the water is where the round lotus leaf with their gorgeous lotus flower which most people are familiar is, can be found. You can find lotus roots at most Asian groceries, and to prepare it, simply rinse the outside dirt away and peel the skin with a peeler. When you slice it open, you’ll find hollow columns that run the length of the root. You can slice it and stir-fry/boil/fry (insert whatever your heart desires) with it. Its texture varies depending on length of cooking time.
