I grew up eating Cantonese cuisine and love that many dishes can be made quickly. Stir frying vegetables are tasty, quick to make, and the ingredient options are endless. This dish is a perfect weeknight dish with lotus root as the star. The best part is that they do not need to blanched and they stay crunchy when cooked.
Try it out.
Happy cooking and eating!
