Stir Fried Sugar Snap Peas Recipe (with Lotus Root)

This Sugar Snap Peas Recipe is a very simple stir fry of chicken meat and vegetables which can also be easily substituted with other ingredients that you normally prefer such as cauliflower, broccoli, snow peas etc. However, I would suggest keeping one essential element of this stir fry i.e. the lotus root as it really lends a sweet crunch to the dish.

I have raved about the lotus root many times before because it’s such a versatile vegetable. You can brew Lotus Root & Peanuts Pork Ribs Soup, stir fry a Kung Pao Lotus Root, make fried rice or minced pork patties with it. So many possibilities to explore.

Other lotus root recipes to try:
Pork Ribs, Lotus Root and Pearl Bean Soup

No matter how you cook it, the lotus root can still retain a nice crisp or crunch – never turns soft or mushy. ??
