Story Behind this Recipe

I learned this delicious cooked soybean recipe from my mother. Since I wanted this to be healthy, I didn't sauté the ingredients, but if you want a richer flavor, you should try sautéing everything in sesame oil first. In my house, we almost always sauté everything in sesame oil when making stews or kinpira. For Lotus Root Kinpira Recipe ID: 634568.
