Lotus roots can be found in Oriental markets. They look like vegetable sausages, a few inches long and about three inches in diameter. The flavor is somewhat reminiscent of a water chestnut as is the texture...very fresh and crisp tasting! When sliced they have an intriguing, lacy cross section that comes from air channels in the root. Lotus roots make a nice addition to soups too!
