Lotus Seeds are edible seeds that can be eaten raw or cooked. They are valued for their nutritional and healing properties and are used in many recipes as well as herbal formulas.
They are harvested and dried in the sun. The seeds have a hard and rough texture and must be soaked in water overnight. They can be added to various dishes, such as soup but remember to remove the shell. One of the most common uses of lotus seeds is a paste which is used in Chinese pastries.
