Lotus Root Chips with Two Dips

{{totalReview}}
Vegetable chips are all the rage these days. This Lotus Root Chips with Two Dips is easy to make your own at home and though it might take quite a bit of oil, it introduces and encourages kids to eat their vegetables. We would say Lotus Root is probably the best deep-fried vegetable as its starchy and fibrous natural texture allows it to hold up its shape when it in the fryer. Not to mention they are super-addictive kind of crunchy! You can air fry or bake these for a healthier alternative. Two dips, including a sweet savory soy honey is perfect with these chips. One tip – I added a dash of apple cider vinegar in the dip as it’s good for building immunity and adds a delicious tangy taste that my son loves.
