Every time I boil lotus root soup at home, I’d end up with extra lotus root in the fridge because I can never find a small root just nice for 2 persons’ serving so this time I thought of slicing the lotus root up to make a really easy vegetable stir fry with french beans and fish cake. This Stir Fried Lotus Root Recipe makes a good low calorie, no carb meal on its own. All we need is just a tiny dollop of oyster sauce and/or dash of fish sauce for flavour.
