Lotus roots are fairly mutritive,having a good content of protein,starch,carbon hydrates,amino acids and vitamins.They are eaten in the southem provinces of China as a fresh fruit for their juicy tenderness and,up in the north,as a dried vegetable for the preparation of various dishes.
A refreshment may be made of lotus root by following a simple recipe:fill the natural holes of the lotus root with glutinous rice,steam it until cooked,cut into slices and serve with sugar.It is sweet with a fresh taste of the lotus plant.
In Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces where lotuses are grown in abundance,starch is industrially extracted from lotus roots and is commercially packen as a special product of the region.Used as the material for an instant gruel,it is first well mixed with sugar and a little warm water into a thick liquid and,when boiling water is quickly poured onto it,congeals into a cooked paste ready to eat.It is something between a drink and a snack and helps to allay both thirst and hunger.
