Lotus Root Soup with Peanut 莲藕花生汤

My son's favourite soup is Lotus Root Soup. My sister likes this soup too but she prefers it with peanut and dried cuttlefish added not dried octopus.

The variation is nice too except the taste of lotus root is not as strong and the taste of peanut is present.

To make this, follow the instruction for Lotus Root Soup, except replace the dried octopus with dried cuttlefish and add 2 handfuls of raw peanuts. I don't add carrot here.


  1. What's the difference in taste between Cuttlefish and Octopus?

  2. Personally, I find soup with dried octopus sweeter. I find the taste of cuttlefish too strong.
