Youโ€™re welcome. How would you like the lotus roots? ๐Ÿ˜ I found some frozen package they sell in supermarket too.

I havenโ€™t tried the lotus root yet. Lately Iโ€™ve been busy at work, and am keeping the lotus root (and also the banana blossom) for when I have the time to properly enjoy cooking and eating it. The soup you made with lotus root and seaweed looked really good, so I think I would like to make something similar ๐Ÿฒ

I love Chinese chives rather than leeks and I was able to cook them all for soup and freeze pancakes for days later on. ๐Ÿ˜

Hope you have a great start of the day! ๐Ÿ˜Š

5.40am and I've settled for a cup of asparagus cup a soup and some bread this morning, still raining lightly and the frogs are in full chorus .. I would say a perfect start of the day ๐Ÿ˜ŠWe had some garlic chives cakes in the fridge and I thought I would try cooking them in the air fryer instead of frying them in a little olive oil as normally do..they were very nice but I still had to turn them..am going to try the tofu this morning in there to see what it's like..we hardly use the air fryer much now, so I'd like to have a reason to keep having it on the kitchen worktop ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thatโ€™s the perfect morning you have with the sound of nature Happyman4. ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ‘For the tofu in air fryer, you still need to spray a little bit of oil or it will be too dry. ( I use avocado spray and the nozzle is really good I can manage to spread evenly). My air fryer is part of the oven so itโ€™s there I usually use all the time. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

I have the olive oil in the can..it goes everywhere, I've only used it the once..I'll give it another go. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘

You can make batch of these pancakes. With the amount of ingredients I used, I was able to make 3 of them so I froze 2 and just need to put in air fryer at anytime to eat. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘

Enjoy the rest of your evening too! ๐Ÿ˜Š
