Baked Lotus Root Chips


  • Ready Time : 0 min




  • 2 pieces of lotus root
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt


Preheat oven to 400F.  Thinly slice lotus root with food processor or mandolin.  Submerge in a bowl of water and let it sit for about 30 minutes or longer.  Drain water and pat try with a towel. Lay out on baking sheet and spray with cooking spray to evenly coat.  Sprinkle with cumin and salt and bake for about 20 minutes.  They are ready when golden brown and crisp, but not burnt.

If desired you could fry these instead in a frying pan, all you need is a thin layer of oil, but it will take more time.

  1. Mmm..looks good! How do they taste? I never had lotus root..dont even know where to find it..

    • I buy them at the Asian market – have a short post about them coming out on Sunday – they are delicious!!!

  2. I LOVE lotus root. It’s one of my favorite vegetables! I always pick it out from the mixed vegetables that I order at Chinese restaurants. Which Asian market do you go to?

    • I got to on in Queens in Flushing, the Asian market capitol, but I am sure there is something in Brooklyn.

  3. I haven’t met a vegetable I didn’t like so I need to see if I can find these – never heard of them

  4. I’ve never had lotus root before! I’m going to search it out very soon…
