This Japanese recipe calls for root vegetables such as lotus root, daikon and carrot.
Lotus root is a good source of dietary fibre as well as vitamins B and C, and a variety of minerals. Daikon contains enzymes which aid digestion, as well as vitamin C and potassium. Carrots are a well-known source of antioxidants, as well as being rich in vitamins C and K. Combine all three in one dish and you’ve got a powerhouse combination of healthy nutrition!
If you want to change it up, replace any or all of the root vegetables with cucumber, celery and/or okra, all three of which are equally nutrient-rich.
