• 1 medium size lotus root cut in half long-ways, then sliced into thin rounds

  • 1 medium size onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil

  • Tamari soy sauce for taste

Lotus Roots


Heat the oil in a pan and sauté the onions. Layer the sliced lotus root on top of the onion. Pour enough water to barely cover the roots. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer on low heat for ¾ hour. Take the lid off and let the liquid evaporate. Add Tamari soy sauce and cook another minute.

Mix well and serve.

“The macrobiotic way of life recommended by the ancient wise people and practiced widely for physical, mental and spiritual development consists of the following arts; the way of eating, the way of breathing, and the way of daily life. Because a human being is part of his environment, and has evolved through biological development covering more than three billion years on this planet, his physical, mental and spiritual conditions are based upon what he consumes from his natural environment and his food. The way of eating is the most essential factor for his development.”
