Notes

I was introduced to lotus root (renkon in Japanese) and mooli (daikon in Japanese) when I lived in rural Japan. Renkon has a beautiful design in the middle once sliced. Renkon makes delicious chips. Daikon is a white radish that looks like a large white carrot and can be used for juices, salads, soups, stews etc. I buy these vegetables in my local Asian market and sometimes I can find them at my local farmer’s market here in Ireland.

Daikon

Daikon & Lotus Root Nutrition - these vegetables not only aid respiratory related illnesses but also have an endless list of associated health benefits including anti cancerous properties. I read various articles that mentioned the possible link between two Asian vegetables and the improvement of respiratory related illnesses such as asthma when eaten alongside a healthy well balanced diet (to note I’m not a qualified nutritionist or health expert!).
