Lotus Root and Sweet Pea

A few days ago I made Lotus Root Soup but had bought too much lotus root so tonight I decided to cook the unused lotus root together with some sweet peas.  An unusual combination but it turned out quite well – the lotus root added an interesting crunch and flavor to the dish.   This is a really simple dish to prepare.

1. Blanch the sweet peas in a pot of boiling water for a minute.

2. Heat up 1 Tbsp of oil, stir fry the lotus root with a bit of salt, about 2 minutes.
