Canh Cu Sen (Lotus Root Soup)

A simple but savory and healthy Canh Cu Sen. The natural sweet from the lotus root gives the broth an exotic flavor. I like the pig’s tail too, especially the crunchy tendon. Since mom cooked the soup, I don’t have to worry about the way the pig’s tail being prepared. As you can see from the photo, she had stripped off most of the pig’s skin.
