During our first visit to Kyushu, Japan, we tried Karashi Renkon, a mustard filled lotus root, which is a specialty of Kumamoto. We also tried lotus root chips which I really liked and regretted that we didn’t buy more to bring home. So when I saw lotus roots on sale at the Asian grocery market, I decided to recreate the chips at home. In this recipe, I use simply seasoned the lotus root chips with salt and pepper. However, I’m sure they’ll taste great with other spices and seasonings so experiment with your own flavours!
