So, what is castaña de agua?

Castaña de agua, also known as water chestnut, is a crunchy and refreshing ingredient commonly used in Asian cuisine. Despite its name, it is not a type of nut, but rather a type of aquatic vegetable that grows in marshes, ponds, and shallow lakes. The outer layer is brown and rough, while the inside is white and juicy with a slightly sweet flavor. Castaña de agua is often used in stir-fries, soups, and salads, and is a great source of fiber, potassium, and vitamin B6. Due to its low calorie content and versatile use, it is a popular ingredient for those following a healthy diet.
