These crisp and crunchy tubers are a popular ingredient in Asian stir-fries, salads, and soups. They have a subtle, slightly sweet flavor and a texture that resembles a cross between an apple and a potato. Chataignes d'eau are low in calories and rich in fiber, making them a nutritious addition to any dish.
