Sprinkled with salt and pepper, these lotus root chips are crispy and delicious. It’s an Asian inspired snack that’s both healthy and easy to make.
Last week, my best friend and I went to a dumpling restaurant because we’re both obsessed with Shanghai dumplings, the ones with the soup in the center. While I was browsing through the menu, I noticed that they offered lotus root chips as an appetizer. I didn’t order them, but all of a sudden, I had this craving for them. I know. Odd, right? How can you crave something you’ve never had before? But I did.
Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, these hash browns are quick and easy to make and taste amazing. Add a dollop of sour cream, a crumbled strip of turkey bacon, a sprinkle of cheese, and a pinch of scallions, and it’s like a baked potato but even better.
I love hash browns. If I’m at McDonald’s early enough, I buy myself not one, but two, because they’re that good. Not that I’m advocating eating breakfast at McDonald’s. Because I’m not. The food there is so terrible for you. But I have to admit, their hash browns are amazing. Guilty pleasure.
